8:13- SUPREME COURT SAYS STATES CAN COLLECT ONLINE SALES TAX, CONSUMERS LIKELY TO PAY MORE
The Supreme Court overturned a longstanding rule last week that states can only collect sales tax on transactions if the retailer has a brick and mortar establishment in the state. Now, the Supreme Court has opened the door for states to collect sales taxes on purchases from online retailers even if that company doesn’t have a physical presence in the state. Internet retailers argued that allowing every state to collect taxes on online sales would cause confusion and unreasonable burdens in today’s online-heavy retail economy. Some retail leaders said the decision could raise prices for consumers by increasing the sales tax. One federal report released in 2017 found that state and local governments lost out on $8-$13 billion in tax revenue because they couldn’t collect tax from online retailers.
How will this affect retailers and consumers?
