Can You Escape New Mexico’s Sales Tax Controversy?

New Mexico passed a law requiring online sellers to collect and remit sales tax last year, but Governor Susana Martinez vetoed it. Last week, online sales tax was again put into law, along with increases in sales tax on services and various other changes.

It’s news that New Mexico is making this change, but it’s almost predictable news. One state after another is adding requirements for remote sellers to pay sales tax, and many are tossing in other sales and use tax changes while they’re at it. Some of the new laws have been changed already, while others are going to the courts to be decided.

The question is, how can you keep track of the changes and figure out which ones apply to your company?
