BNA Bloomberg – Federal Audit: States Losing Billions to Tax-Free Online Sales
Steve DelBianco, president and CEO of NetChoice, a Washington-based internet commerce trade association, shared Moylan’s opinion about the small revenue recovery.
“GAO’s report is comprehensive and credible, and should be subtitled as ‘This Juice Is Just Not Worth The Squeeze,’ since states would add less than 1 percent to their total state and local tax revenue, but would impose significant costs and risks on small businesses using the web to reach customers,” DelBianco told Bloomberg Tax in an email.
NetChoice and the NTUF were two of six organizations that filed friend-of-the-court briefs in support of a brief in opposition—from e-commerce companies Wayfair Inc., Overstock.com Inc., and Newegg Inc.—that argued that the U.S. Supreme Court should deny South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley’s (R) request for review of a state Supreme Court ruling that found the state’s “economic nexus” law, S.B. 106 (codified as S.D. Codified Laws Chapter 10-64), unconstitutional under Quill.
