NetChoice wrote to the Minnesota Committee on Taxes to oppose SF 282, which would harm Minnesota businesses who depend upon Internet advertising to pay for valuable information and services provided free-of-charge to Minnesota residents.  SF 282 is designed to increase collection of sales taxes when Minnesotans purchase from out-of-state retailers. It would apply to any retailer that uses an extended network of websites for displaying advertisements. The law re-defines what it means to solicit business in the state, and creates a presumption of nexus when an out-of-state company advertises through Minnesota websites.
