This section requires the Commissioner of Revenue to promulgate regulations by May 31, 2021 so as to require third-party processors (predominantly credit card companies) to remit to the Commonwealth, on a daily basis, the portion of a sale that is attributable to sales tax. There would be no change to the current schedule for reporting and remitting the sales tax for cash sales.
