When to register for tax collection
Use the Thresholds tab to get insights about your potential tax registration obligations in Rhode Island. 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 either the sales or transaction number thresholds must register for a Rhode Island sales tax permit, collect sales tax on sales that ship into Rhode Island, and remit that sales tax to the state.
It’s worth noting that Rhode Island isn’t repealing, nor eliminating the use tax notice and reporting requirements for non-collecting sellers. Remote sellers who meet the thresholds no longer have the option to comply with the existing use tax notice and report; however, remote sellers who don’t satisfy the economic nexus threshold have the choice to register to collect sales tax in Rhode Island or comply with the notice and report for non-collecting sellers.
Threshold: 100,000 USD or 200 transactions
Period: Previous year
Included transactions: Gross sales
Effective date: July 1, 2019
