While Alaska does not have a state-level sales tax, many local governments impose a sales tax on taxable sales.  This impacts companies doing business in Alaska and remote sellers whose statewide sales meet the requirements to collect and remit sales tax.  In an effort to simplify the complexity associated with knowing when and where to collect sales tax, Alaska formed the Alaska Remote Seller Sales Tax Commission. 

In coordination with MUNIRevs, companies can easily register, file tax returns, and remit tax using this website: https://arsstc.munirevs.com/
If a remote seller or marketplace facilitator meets the criteria threshold set out in the Commission’s Uniform Code then registration is encouraged immediately. Collection should begin according to the effective date of member municipalities. Please follow the collection and return policy adopted by the Commission.

Established in 2011, MUNIRevs works with states and communities to automate their business revenue collection.  With more than a billion dollars in paperless revenue collected, MUNIRevs has become the trusted source for payment processing, allowing residents the ease and convenience of on-time payment while helping cities and states eliminate approximately 95 percent of the manual data entry tasks.
