First organized in March 2000, the Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP) aims to simplify and modernize tax collection and management in the United States. It was created in response to congressional efforts to permanently prohibit states from collecting the revenue tax on e-commerce. Since such a ban would have serious financial consequences for states, the SSTP began to try to minimize the many differences between state VAT policies and practices. The SSTP was dissolved following the entry into force of the SSUTA (Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement) on 1 October 2005.  Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Project (SSTP) was launched in March 2000 to develop a sales and usage tax system that facilitates tax compliance for all retailers. VAT relief is a national effort by governments, locals and the private sector to simplify and modernize sales and use tax collection and administration. These national efforts led to the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement. The registration of TSS can make compliance with VAT much lighter and less burdensome in ESDs, especially for companies with high turnover in several NESS countries.
