Online retailer shares pressured by change in United States online tax regime

Supreme Court clears way for states to collect... They often don't have the resources to handle the patchwork of sales taxes across multiple states, according to the retailers, while larger outlets like Amazon don't have that problem.

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday in South Dakota's favor after the state sued several online retailers in 2016 based on a separate law seeking to get them to collect the tax.

Krist said if he were governor, he would urge the Legislature to pass a bill requiring online retailers start collecting the tax right away. Legislative action has been stalled while the Supreme Court was deciding this case. "This is a big win for states that now they are able to tax more broadly".

The case, known as South Dakota vs. Wayfair, overturned a 1992 ruling made by the high court at a time when e-commerce made up a much less significant portion of the economy. So it passed a law requiring all but the smallest retailers, including Internet companies, to collect taxes on the sales they make in the state, even if they had no physical presence there. "These critiques underscore that the physical presence rule, both as first formulated and as applied today, is an incorrect interpretation of the Commerce Clause", he wrote.

In a statement on Thursday, retail giant Target praised the ruling. "States are already confronting the complexities of defining physical presence in the Cyber Age", he wrote. This will create a new revenue stream from state and local governments. It sent the law back to South Dakota's highest court to be revisited.
