Notice to Register for Remote/Marketplace Facilitator Sales into Alaska

The Alaska Remote Seller Sales Tax Commission has passed its Uniform Code, as it applies to Remote Sellers and Marketplace facilitators. This is a streamlined Code that accommodates the individual rates and exemptions of multiple jurisdictions within Alaska, with single-level, statewide administration.

The Commission reduces the burden on interstate commerce by providing

1) software that has been approved by the taxing authorities reflecting rates and exemptions, attached to GIS-mapped delivery
2) software that provides a single access point for filing returns and remittance, including batch returns. These can be accessed at:

• Registration, returns and remittance –
o If a remote seller or marketplace facilitator meets the criteria threshold set out in the Commission’s Uniform Code then registration is                                 encouraged immediately
o Collection should begin according to the effective date of member municipalities; please follow the collection and return policy adopted by the                  Commission
• Tax look up map –
o As members adopt the Code, their information herein will be updated and additional features added
o Please utilize the API code for access to rates and GIS-mapping

As local governments adopt the Code, Sellers will be notified on the 1st of every month of their effective dates, and returns will become allowable on the first day of the month after the 30 day effective date.

If you have any questions about how to register or submit returns and remittance, look up rates and exemptions, or need guidance at all, then please don’t hesitate to contact us at or by phone at (907)790-5300.
