Don’t Assume the Supreme Court Will Open the Door For New Internet Taxes
State tax collectors are counting on a vote from Justice Thomas to put them over the top. Knowing that Justice Thomas isn’t a fan of the dormant commerce clause, one of the many issues at play in Wayfair, these tax-advocates are already counting his vote.
