If states act aggressively, consumers may also be paying moreWarner Bros/courtesy Everett Collection / Everett CollectionSmall online businesses are waiting to see what the Supreme Court’s ruling on online sales tax means for them. Small online businesses may bear the brunt of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to allow states to collect sales tax from online retailers, but how bad it’ll be, they don’t yet know. The high court ruling released Thursday gives states the right to collect sales tax from online vendors, even if they don’t have a physical presence in that state, overturning a pre-internet court ruling called Quill that exempted online merchants from those collection duties.
One thing's for sure: Consumers who live in one of the five states without a sales tax won't be affected by the Supreme Court's ruling.
States have the authority to make online retailers collect sales taxes, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday, a milestone marking e-commerce’s treatment as a mature player in a marketplace no longer defined by trips to the corner store or the shopping mall. By a 5-to-4 vote, the court closed a loophole that helped fuel the early growth of internet sales, overruling a half-century of its own precedents that forbid states from requiring merchants to collect sales tax unless those sellers maintain a “physical presence” within the state’s borders. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who suggested years ago that the pre-Amazon.com precedent should be updated for the digital age, wrote for a majority that defied conventional ideological lines.
