Today, the U.S. Supreme Court by a vote of 5-4 overturned the
case which prevented the collection of sales tax on out-of-state vendors who had no physical presence in the state.
State and Local Groups Respond to Supreme
South Dakota v. Wayfair
"State and local organizations applaud the U.S. Supreme Court's decision recognizing that the 1992 Quill ruling put Main Street retailers at a competitive disadvantage to remote sellers and the efforts by states to simplify the sales tax collection process and giving those states remote sales tax collection authority. For 26 years Congress has failed to act and through the efforts of Justice Anthony Kennedy, the federal government has finally recognized the changing nature of commerce and state efforts to simplify the collection process."
