Bloomberg Law - High Court Has The Ball: State Digital Tax Cases Slowing Down

There’s been little movement in the Indiana case since a complaint was filed in June 2017 by Washington-based NetChoice and the American Catalog Mailers Association (ACMA), asking an Indiana trial court to strike down House Enrolled Act 1129. The statute requires out-of-state retailers to collect and remit Indiana sales tax if those sellers have 200 or more transactions in the state or sell $100,000 or more in-state.

Steve DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice, previously told Bloomberg Tax in September 2017 that he was “confident that the court would grant an injunction barring enforcement of the Indiana law, just as a South Dakota court did in March by invalidating a nearly identical law there.”

“It’s a delicious irony how Massachusetts argues that a Virginia court lacks jurisdiction over the Massachusetts DOR, while at the same time claiming their DOR has tax jurisdiction over Virginia retailers who lack any physical presence in Massachusetts,” DelBianco said.
