Brownells Suddenly Requiring FID To Ship Ammo To NJ

Recommended Posts

targetsportsUSA still doesn't charge tax. Ordered something from them last week and didn't get charged tax. Most of the big box retailers are going to (brownells, midway, PA etc.)....all the discount codes on Brownells used to be great, now you just end up saving $5-10 and get free shipping

i find the implementation across the internet to be wildly inconsistent, and not just from gun-related sites

edit: see the guy above for examples

Assuming the business doesn't have some sort of presence in the state, which if they did they would automatically be required to collect sales tax... but for companies like brownells... it depends on how much total sales has been done with the state in the previous quarters.. so yes some merchants you may still be able to buy things online and not pay sales tax. This is why it may seem to be inconsistent to you. This went into effect  as of November 1st 2018.

"New Jersey’s new law will require online retailers and marketplaces like eBay to begin collecting sales taxes and turning the revenue over to the state if they have gross revenues over $100,000 a year in New Jersey, or if their in-state sales volume exceeds more than 200 transactions annually."

One person posting on a New Jersey forum influenced the masses? This was news all over Reddit Gun Deals and other 2A subreddit’s since JANUARY.

Specific vendors did not start charging sales tax because someone posted something on a public forum.  Anyone who believes that is the reason ... they are misinformed. Read the tax law and understand what your referring to before making false statements such as that.

It's really quite simple... there are thresholds to meet in the number of transactions to this state and/or the amount of sales being done in this state.   Breach those thresholds and they must collect NJ state sales tax.  Saying some business started collecting sales tax because someone talked about it in a forum is a moronic statement.

Economic Threshold
Consistent with Wayfair, legislation was enacted that requires certain remote sellers to collect and remit New Jersey Sales Tax. For sales made on and after November 1, 2018, a remote seller that makes a retail sale of tangible personal property, specified digital products, or services delivered into New Jersey must register, collect, and remit New Jersey Sales Tax if the remote seller meets either of the following criteria (the economic threshold):

  • The remote seller's gross revenue from sales of tangible personal property, specified digital products, or services delivered into New Jersey during the current or prior calendar year, exceeds $100,000; or
  • The remote seller sold tangible personal property, specified digital products, or services delivered into New Jersey in 200 or more separate transactions during the current or prior calendar year.

A remote seller that does not meet either of these criteria does not have to register with the Division of Taxation to collect and remit New Jersey Sales Tax.

Clearly, you are missing the point. I am well aware of the new State law. What an internet vendor is required to do and what they do in practice are two different things. My post was not specifically directed toward Brownells, but was intended to be a generic comment. There are still some internet ammo dealers who will remain nameless who are non -compliant but calling attention to them does not help the rest of us. If an internet vendor decides not to comply, that is on them, but beneficial to us. I doubt, but do not know, if the State has the resources to go after ever internet vendor in every category of merchandise sales, but identifying a category in a public posting, might get the wheels going. Whose side are you on? It is not so much that any one post triggers an inquiry, but multiple posts, especially on a forum such as this that deals with an interest group the State would like to crush, does not help the cause
