When to register for tax collection
Use the Thresholds tab to get insights about your potential tax registration obligations in Iowa. Stripe also notifies you with email and Dashboard alerts when you need to register to collect tax. Learn more about how the monitoring tool works.
Sellers that meet the sales thresholds must register for an Iowa sales tax permit, collect sales tax on sales that ship into Iowa, and remit that sales tax to the state. For those under the threshold, it’s voluntary, but you can register for an Iowa Retailer’s Use Tax (RUT) permit (also voluntary). If you’ve already registered for the RUT and go over the economic threshold, you’ll need to cancel your RUT and register for an Iowa sales tax permit.
Threshold: 100,000 USD
Period: Previous or current year
Included transactions: Gross sales
Effective date: January 1, 2019
