Nineteen of the 20 largest retailers are already collecting sales tax regardless of their physical presence in each state, according to briefs filed in the case as cited by The Washington Post. The attorney general of South Dakota, who defended a state rule that required out-of-state retailers to collect state taxes, said the decision is a win for the state and small businesses. Businesses had to collect sales tax only when shipping products to a state where they had a physical presence, such as a warehouse or office.
The US Supreme Court just upended 26 years of tax law by overturning a ruling that had blocked states from collecting sales taxes for all online purchases.
Soon after the South Dakota law passed, South Dakota took it to court with retailers Newegg, Wayfair and Overstock, alleging that the companies failed to comply with their state sales tax laws. Not to mention, notesRecode, Amazon already collects sales tax in states around the USA when it sells directly to customers.
"Each year the physical presence rule becomes further removed from economic reality and results in significant revenue losses to the States", he wrote in an opinion joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. They said local tax laws vary widely across the nation and calculating sales taxes for 10,000 local taxing jurisdictions remains a daunting task.
A spokesperson for the department said the state is still reviewing the court's decision. Smaller, local businesses also complained that the previous decisions put them at a disadvantage with online competitors. "This decision finally levels that playing field, and I think that's all any business wants".
In the wake of the ruling, companies like Amazon will have to keep an eye on how each state handles sales tax legislation and whether they will have to collect the funds on behalf of third-party sellers.
