Supreme Court Ruling Means Some Online Purchases Will Cost More

The 5-4 ruling is a win for states who say are missing out on billions of dollars a year from online sales tax. That precedent dates to 1967, when the court said mail-order retailers were obligated to collect sales taxes only in states in which a company had a physical presence, such as a retail store or distribution center. In criticizing Amazon and its founder, Jeff Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, Trump said Amazon did not collect sales taxes.

The law calls for a one-tenth percent rate cut per $20 million in new state revenue from purchases through online retailers.
Prior to Wayfair v South Dakota, businesses that didn't have a physical location in a state were not required to remit sales taxes to that state government for their sales.

He said the court should not be doing the work of Congress, even if its earlier precedents were wrongly decided. They said local tax laws vary widely across the nation and calculating sales taxes for 10,000 local taxing jurisdictions remains a daunting task. The use tax Many states have a use tax equivalent to the sales tax that applies to online purchases but most online businesses do not comply with it.
