Streamlined Sales Tax Project

Organized in March 2000, the Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP) objective is to simplify and modernize sales and use tax collection and administration in the United States. It arose in response to efforts by Congress to permanently prohibit states from collecting sales taxes on online commerce. Because such a ban would have serious financial consequences for states, the SSTP began as an effort to try to minimize the many differences between the sales tax policies and practices of states. The SSTP was dissolved once the Streamline Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA) became effective on October 1, 2005.
