Hopefully you are aware by now that the landscape of interstate commerce was changed last summer with the Supreme Court’s decision in the South Dakota v. Wayfair case. The Court’s decision has caused many states to require dealer registration (and filing of state tax returns) by any dealer meeting state determined thresholds, whether or not the dealer has sold only state tax exempted items. Dealers are also required to collect and remit sales taxes on all coins, currency, and precious-metals sales to buyers in any state in which such purchases are not specifically exempted under the state statutes. Right now, 13 states have no exemptions, but lawmakers in Nebraska and Washington want to remove the exemption and others are expected to follow. In short, wherever there are no bullion exemptions, for example, gold or silver must increase 4% – 7% for an investor to breakeven. Sales will plunge!
