Supreme Court rules states can collect sales tax for online purchases nationwide

Supreme Court rules states can collect sales tax for online purchases nationwide”

The Supreme Court decided the previous tax structure in Quill Corp. v. This decision overturned a 1992 ruling, which allowed these platforms to use the internet as a tax-free haven.

Anyway, that's that. Within a year or less, every state will collect sales tax on internet and mail-order sales.

E-commerce now makes up about 10 percent of US retail sales, according to the Commerce Department.

"In light of internet retailers' pervasive and continuous virtual presence in the states where their websites are accessible, the states have ample authority to require those retailers to collect state sales taxes owed by their customers", U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco said in a friend-of-the-court brief.

Susan Rice: Kim was victor of summit with Trump
During the interview, the subject of Trump's recent Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un arose. But it remains in possession of fissile material for a dozen to 60 nuclear bombs, independent experts say.

Small online businesses will be the hardest hit, said Chris Cox, a lawyer for e-commerce industry group NetChoice.

Alternatively, some people argue that the costs associated with being forced to comply with these new regulations could put some smaller retailers out of business entirely.

South Dakota was backed by President Donald Trump's administration in the case. Forty-five of the 50 states impose sales taxes.

That said, South Dakota's tax system includes several features that appear created to prevent discrimination against or undue burdens upon interstate commerce.

Trump smiled and patted Kim on the back, ushering him towards the conference room. "That's what I do". Trump's flair for reality television with the high stakes of nuclear politics.

More retailers are collecting, including 19 of the 20 largest, regardless of whether they have a physical presence in the state, according to briefs filed in the case.

"Each year the physical presence rule becomes further removed from economic reality and results in significant revenue losses to the States".

You will soon likely be paying more in taxes for online purchases. "It is unfair and unjust to those competitors, both local and out of state, who must remit the tax; to the consumers who pay the tax; and to the states that seek fair enforcement of the sales tax".
