'Good news, but it's not a windfall' in Washington state

The Supreme Court rules against Wayfair and other online retailers and overturns ban on the collection of online sales taxes. Jenny Kane  AP

Nebraska already requires residents to pay online sales taxes via their income tax returns.

States were missing out on around 25 percent of the tax from online sales, according to the Government Accountability Office, meaning $13 billion in missed sales. That ruling held that a state can not require an out-of-state seller with no physical presence in the state to collect and remit sales taxes on goods the seller ships to consumers there. As a result, we do not expect today's decision to have any noticeable impact on our business, as it may on other retailers who do not now collect and remit sales tax. They instead suggested that Congress should pass legislation simplifying online sales tax to create a level playing field.

In making the 5-4 decision, the court acknowledged but largely tossed out the internet companies' arguments. Not only will more money from online sales come in, but also it may also lead to more people shopping at local businesses, he said. If a business had a physical presence in a state, then they could be forced to collect sales tax at the time of purchase.

The chamber is a long-time advocate for online sales tax collection. Amazon who was not mentioned in the case does charge sales tax in states that impose it but only on products sold from their own inventory.

The retail trade association argued in a friend-of-the-court brief previous year that the court's 1992 Quill Corp. v.

The court chose to overturn a 1992 decision that a physical presence was necessary to require retailers to collect and send sales taxes to a state. The NRF had argued in a friend-of-the-court brief a year ago that there's a wide variety of software available to automatically collect the sales tax owed. "SC already collects (sales tax) on 22 of the top 25 e-retailers". Until now, online retailers with no physical presence in a state were not. "There are a lot of retailers out there that have only collected sales tax in states where they have to".

"(The prior decision) puts both local businesses and many interstate businesses with physical presence at a competitive disadvantage relative to remote sellers", Kennedy wrote. We applaud state legislators who took the initiative in the 2017 Indiana General Assembly to prepare for this hoped-for decision.
