The article focuses on the agreement of nineteen U.S. states to the Streamlined Sales & Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA), which became effective in fall 2006. The purpose of the SSUTA is to reconcile state sales-and-use-tax rules and bring uniformity to the definition of items in the sales-tax base. The agreement will provide a uniform sales-tax collection system that would apply to all retailers.
