Business Advocate – South Dakota: State Supreme Court sides with sellers in the battle for online tax revenue
The trade group NetChoice, a ubiquitous leader in the effort to quash sales tax collection rules on internet retailers, issued a widely published statement that ecommercebytes.com included in its article about the lawsuit:
If the high court takes this case, we will be ready to show that the perspective of a few large online retail defendants is only a small part of the story. In fact, many thousands of smaller businesses would bear disproportionate burdens and costs if they are forced to become tax collectors for 12,000 jurisdictions across 46 states.
Even so, in a different statement, NetChoice highlighted its stance that “Congress is best suited to weigh the benefits and burdens of empowering state tax auditors to go after every business in America.”
