Sales Tax-Small Businesses story

"This is a big win for local brick-and-mortar retailers, who will now get a chance to compete on a level playing field with out-of-state internet companies that have maintained an unfair edge by not collecting sales taxes". The decisions made it more hard for states to collect sales tax on certain online purchases, and more than 40 states had asked the high court for action. E-commerce giant Amazon has collected sales tax from IL shoppers since 2015.

State officials - including in SC, with its 6 percent sales tax - have argued they were losing out on millions - if not, in some cases, billions - of dollars in revenue a year under the Supreme Court's previous 1992 decision.

Allowing some online retailers off the hook in collecting sales taxes put small local businesses at a disadvantage, Kadoun said.

Shares of Amazon, Wayfair, Etsy and eBay were all down in early trading Thursday immediately following the ruling.

In making the 5-4 decision, the court acknowledged but largely tossed out the internet companies' arguments. "Now estimates range from $8 billion to $33 billion". "We are proud to have been a part of the effort that resulted in yesterday's decision". Cristina Castro, a Democrat from Elgin who helped push the provision.

"It's not as easy as pushing a button", because businesses will need to make decisions about where they're going to collect tax, Yesnowitz says.

In their report, Tempe Police say Vasquez was responsible for taking control of the vehicle in the event of an emergency. A photo from the police report show's the self-driving Uber's front-end damage after the fatal crash .

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.

In Illinois, whether a shopper is charged sales tax at online checkout has depended on whether the retailer had a large enough physical presence in the state to trigger collection requirements, such as maintaining a store, office or warehouse. As its physical presence increased, the company found itself subject to more state sales tax laws and previous year the company began charging state sales taxes on all Amazon purchases, though sales tax on sales from third-party vendors using the Amazon marketplace are levied only if the vendor chooses to do so.

Gov. Justice says this is a legislative issue that would have to be passed for the state to enforce the collection of out-of-state sales taxes.

Floridians, however, already pay tax on streaming services like Netflix, and are supposed to pay state tax whenever they buy "tangible" things like books and DVDs but seldom do, the Tampa Tribune has reported. In the brief, NRF cited a wide variety of software available to automatically collect the sales tax owed, much of its available free or at low cost.

But Karr said he wasn't concerned about challenges complying with new regulations that might not be consistent state to state.

You have most likely been able to avoid paying sales tax on a lot of online purchases over the years, but that's coming to an end.
