Today, Electronic Retailing Association's (ERA – Retailing.org) Vice President, Government Affairs, Bill McClellan, reacts to the Supreme Court Review of Internet Sales Tax.
Today the Supreme Court granted a petition for certiorari in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., Overstock.com, Inc., and Newegg, Inc.
“The Court’s review of this petition is an important milestone in the long-running Online Sales Tax debate. ERA continues to strongly believe that the physical presence standard set in the Quill decision stands as the correct Constitutional interpretation and should be upheld,” said McClellan.
“The current ongoing judicial attempts to force remote retailers to collect and remit sales tax are burdensome, unfair and predatory for the small and midsize businesses who will be most affected. Let Congress finish its job in negotiating an equitable solution that works for all stakeholders. Protecting the free flow of interstate commerce from overreaching state tax laws is critically important to ensure a healthy and vibrant marketplace and economy.”
