Leading SSTP Figure Joins Taxware

by Mike Godfrey,, New York

15 October 2002

Taxware, a leading provider of worldwide commercial tax compliance systems announced that Charles D. Collins, Jr. has joined the company as director of government affairs. For the past three years, Collins has been Co-Chair of the Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP), the grouping of thirty-nine states which has been developing a radically simplified sales and use tax structure to allow the taxation of cross-border Internet sales on a coherent, national basis.

At Taxware, Charles Collins will be responsible for maintaining and enhancing the company’s relationships with legislative and regulatory bodies worldwide.

“We are truly excited to have someone of Charles’ caliber joining the Taxware family,” said Mike Mancinelli, president of Taxware. “His expertise in sales and use taxes is an incredible asset to Taxware and further demonstrates our commitment to being the number one transaction tax solution. Charles will add to the company’s innovative culture and help produce even more ground-breaking products and services for our clients.”

The SSTP is getting close to agreement on a model sale and use tax Act which all participating states will agree to adopt, opening the way for Congress to legislate nationally in prepaqration for the expiration of the moratorium on Internet taxation which was extended for two years in 2001 and will run out next year.

In 2000, the SSTP authorized a Pilot Project under which Certified Service Providers would assume the sales and use tax compliance burden for merchants doing business in Kansas, Michigan, North Carolina and Wisconsin. Taxware was the first Certified Service Provider to successfully bring a merchant live during the pilot period. The scheme is still running, and vendors involved in the scheme have asked to continue with it when it officially ends.

“Charles is a leading authority on transaction tax simplification, and his addition to the Taxware team is one of many actions we are taking to ensure that we remain at the forefront of the worldwide simplification effort,” said Jon Abolins, Taxware’s Vice President of Tax and Government Affairs.

“Taxware is a leader in the tax compliance industry and more importantly a believer in tax simplification. I am looking forward to helping them provide painless solutions to businesses and governments around the world,” said Collins. “I am excited about this opportunity with Taxware and to be able to continue to work on the simplification effort.”

Taxware, a division of govONE Solutions, is a leading developer of global commercial tax compliance systems. Taxware’s products simplify the tax calculation and compliance process with solutions for sales and use taxes, address verification, exemption and exception processing, automated returns, e-commerce transactions, and value added tax (VAT) for businesses around the globe.
