With limited exceptions, for the first year a State is granted membership in the SSUTA it has to grant amnesty for any businesses that may have had a collection responsibility but did not collect that Member State’s sales/use tax. (Associate Member States must continue to grant amnesty until one year after they become a Full Member State.)

The BAC represents all sizes of businesses, practitioners, and associations that are engaged in and support efforts by the SSUTA States to simplify the collection and remittance of their sales/use taxes. The BAC is the formally recognized body under Section 811 of the SSUTA to represent the private sector in advising the SSUTA Governing Board. The BAC has over 85 members from the business community.
