  • Supreme Court closes online sales tax loophole

Before Thursday's Supreme Court ruling, the only way a state could collect sales tax from online retailers is if the retailer had a physical presence in that particular state. For small businesses, this could mean a more even playing field, since large online retailers have been able to skirt taxes in states where they don't have a physical presence. "But once that happens, Trump Store and other internet retailers are going to have to start collecting sales taxes in states where they do a meaningful amount of business".

The U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc.[1] on Thursday. B&H doesn't require that buyers pay sales tax if they place orders outside of NY or New Jersey, and while you're supposed to later pay those uncollected funds when tax time comes around, the vast majority of people don't. Our reading of the ruling is that the case now returns to the South Dakota Supreme Court to evaluate the case on its merits, unfettered by the now antiquated physical nexus standard defined by Bellas Hess (1967) and upheld in Quill (1992). The Court noted that the law had three features created to prevent discrimination against or undue burdens upon interstate commerce: it had a safe harbor for those transacting limited business in the State; it was not retroactive; and the State was a member of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, which has been adopted by more than 20 States to standardize taxes to reduce administrative and compliance costs. Some experts think states will need to pass additional legislation to collect more tax on online purchases, which could take some time.

Bridgett Lambert, the executive director of the West Virginia Retailers Association, said she was not sure if Justice understands the impact of the ruling. Kennedy also noted the existence of software that "may make it easier for small businesses to cope" with compliance. "We do have a mechanism in place in Tennessee that we can begin collecting sales tax", Hawk said. He's concerned about consumers cutting back their purchases when they see they have to pay sales tax, but he also believes in time they'll get used to the added cost.

Second, Hawaii is not a member of the Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement and can not be a member unless its laws are amended significantly. Oklahoma has benefited to the tune of about $25.9 million, he said, while OKC has seen an increase of $4 million and Moore has netted about $320,344 in additional taxes. As consumers shifted away from brick and mortar business and took their purchase power online, states lost billions in annual tax revenue. Many small online sellers may use Amazon's platform as it will collect and remit sales tax for them.

"It really is a disadvantage to local brick and mortar stores".

However, FOX 13 reported last month that the Utah Tax Commission has been quietly inking deals with a number of online retailers to get them to collect taxes. "Part of the biggest challenge for the sellers is to know in each particular state if its goods and services are subject to sales tax, because there's no uniform definition".

In a previous statement before the overturning of Quill vs North Dakota, Rauschenberger said North Dakota was "missing out on up to $50 million in revenue each year".
