The City of Cordova appreciates citizens notifying us about the recent change of Amazon collecting sales tax on Cordova purchases, effective January 1, 2019.
The Sales Tax Department has reached out to Amazon and the company is now set up for business licensing and sales tax collection on certain orders shipped to Cordova. This is not the result of any changes with the City of Cordova sales tax code.
Amazon will collect 6% sales tax on items fulfilled by Amazon from its own warehouses. Taxes are not being collected on sales by Amazon subsidiaries or its 3rd party retailers. The City expects the company to remit sales tax payments on the regular schedule, which is by the end of month following the current quarter. In this case, that means the City expects payment by April 30, 2019.
The City encourages everyone to review their receipts from online purchases and if you see tax assessed, contact the City so the Finance Department can follow up with the company.
