Notice to Marketplace Facilitators

House Bill 379 of the 2020 Regular Session creates the Mississippi Marketplace Facilitator Act of 2020. This act defines a marketplace facilitator as any person who facilitates a retail sales by a seller by:

(i)           listing or advertising for sale by the retailer in any forum, tangible personal property, services or digital goods that are subject to tax under Mississippi sales tax law; and

(ii)          either directly or indirectly through agreements or arrangements with third parties collecting payment from the customer and transmitting that payment to the retailer regardless of whether the marketplace provider receives compensation or other consideration in exchange for its service.

 

House Bill 379 additionally provides that sales facilitated by third party food delivery services that deliver food from an unrelated restaurant to a customer are not considered retail sales. These third party food delivery services should pay sales tax to the restaurant on the cost of the food purchased from the restaurant and not charge the customer sales tax on the delivery.
