NetChoice, a trade association of Internet companies and organizations, and American Catalog Mailers Association (“ACMA”), a trade association representing the interests of companies, individuals, and organizations engaged in and supporting catalog marketing, disagreed. In June, the two organizations filed suit to stop the new rule from taking effect. Among the arguments in the lawsuit were allegations that the Commonwealth had not followed proper procedures with respect to the directive.
The rule, which was expected to take effect on July 1, 2017, was eventually revoked. However, it’s not completely buried. I fully expect to see it again after some procedural tweaks. And other states are watching closely to see what happens. If the revised rule successfully moves forward, it could change the way that state revenue departments view – and tax – online sales from out of state retailers.
