Shared Services from the Alaska Municipal League
These shared services are offered to strengthen local governments who may either not have access to or the capacity to manage them on their own.
The ARSSTC was established via an intergovernmental agreement in 2019 to coordinate sales tax collection for remote sales into Alaska.
The ARSSTC provides governance over the streamlined, single-level administration of sales tax collection and remittance; while ensuring due diligence.
The Alaska Municipal League is committed to a responsible and responsive approach to implementation of remote sales tax collection and remittance in Alaska. That means that our work thus far has focused on research that informs any next steps that municipalities choose to take, consistent with the interests of residents.
- Local Governments benefit from our single-level administration that standardizes the tax collection for remote sellers.
- Businesses/Sellers can find out if they need to register, and start the process.
- Some taxing jurisdictions have been collecting sales tax on remote purchases, ARSSTC shares information the about regulations and how this may affect you as a buyer.
