The 5-4 decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, June 21, will now allow states to collect sales taxes from online businesses whether they have a physical location in that state or not.
The high court ruled Thursday to overturn The Supreme Court says states can force online shoppers to pay sales tax.those decisions. The law required out-of-state sellers who do more than $100,000 of business in the state or more than 200 transactions annually with state residents to collect sales tax and turn it over to the state. So it passed a law requiring all but the smallest retailers, including Internet companies, to collect taxes on the sales they make in the state, even if they had no physical presence there. In today's context, he said, the physical presence rule is "an extraordinary imposition by the judiciary on the states' authority to collect taxes and perform critical public functions".

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in dissent that the sales tax issue should have been left to Congress to decide. "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". The ruling should also eliminate the need for the kind of workarounds that MA regulators have recently devised to snare more online vendors, such as arguing that Internet "cookies" constituted a physical presence, a policy Kennedy cited as he dispensed with the physical-presence test.

Sales tax collection in Florida already has been evolving. "Now our members are going to be able to figure out how to construct their businesses without worrying about whether putting a distribution center on this side of a state line or that side of the state line will result in a different tax implication". Pointing to the company's ads, he wrote: "What Wayfair ignores in its subtle offer to assist in tax evasion is that creating a dream home assumes solvent state and local governments". Some states have exemptions for collecting sales tax. Perhaps most importantly, the state law does not permit sales tax collection for past purchases, meaning that businesses don't have to worry about a huge tax bill that they never anticipated. The court in Wayfair overruled Quill as well as an earlier physical presence case, National Bellas Hess v. Department of Revenue of IL.
