NetChoice, a national trade association of eCommerce businesses that promotes convenience, choice and commerce online, opposes H.B. 2702 in its present form. According to a NetChoice analysis, H.B. 2702 would discriminate against interstate commerce by requiring out-of-state business to pay the Transaction Privilege Tax (sales tax) of the location where Arizona purchasers reside, while in-state businesses could simply use the rates and rules applying to the physical business location regardless of where customers reside.
Davison, Wayfair Inc.’s counsel George Isaacson of Brann & Isaacson, and Steve DelBianco of NetChoice initially met with the MTC in July to discuss industry’s proposal for federal legislation that would put conditions on the implementation of Wayfair. The discussions continued during the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board’s October meetings, where the industry leaders received pushback from the streamlined states.
