Just got this email. I am an out of state seller, not sure who all it went to.
Occasionally, Amazon is required by law to disclose information about your business to tax authorities in jurisdictions where you have significant sales or meet other criteria set by the tax authority. We are writing to notify you of one such disclosure. Amazon received a valid and binding legal demand from the State of Wisconsin Department of Revenue (WDOR) requiring that Amazon disclose the following information about your business:
• Contact information (name, address, and US federal tax ID number)
• Amount of your Amazon.com sales to Wisconsin customers during the 2017 calendar year
• Wisconsin sales tax, use tax, or local tax collected (if any) on those transactions and turned over to you in accordance with your tax calculation settings.
To comply with our obligations under the law, we plan to provide this information to the WDOR by December 17, 2018. This disclosure has no impact on your seller performance or account health on Amazon.
In many cases, sellers who register and file taxes in Wisconsin already provide information on their Amazon business as part of their tax filings. Since each seller’s business and tax needs are unique, we encourage you to consult with a tax advisor to answer any questions you might have. You can also refer to the following resources in Seller Central:
• Solution Provider Network (sign-in required), a directory with information about several tax advisors: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/external/G201687890
• Tax calculation services (optional) for calculating sales and use taxes in the US: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/G200787660.
Thank you for selling on Amazon,
