Sales and Use Tax

Vermont Sales Tax is charged on the retail sales of tangible personal property unless exempted by law. The sales tax rate is 6%. Vermont Use Tax is imposed on the buyer at the same rate as the sales tax.

The recent Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair has made the out-of-state vendor provisions of Act 134 of 2016 effective. Certain out-of-state vendors are now required to register with the State of Vermont and collect and remit sales tax beginning July 1, 2018. An out-of-state vendor making sales into the State must register and collect sales tax if they made sales of at least $100,000 or 200 individual transactions during any preceding twelve-month period. Please register for a sales tax license or contact with questions. Read more >>
