Roll Call – Supreme Court Overturns 1992 Sales Tax Ruling

Roll Call – Supreme Court Overturns 1992 Sales Tax Ruling

NetChoice, a trade association to promote online commerce, said the ruling would “unleash a summer of chaos” as small businesses struggle to comply with the conflicting tax rules of more than 12,000 local tax jurisdictions across 46 states.

“Consumers will quickly feel the negative effects as those businesses dry up or are forced into the arms of Internet giants,” said former Rep. Chris Cox, who authored a law on internet taxation and now is NetChoice outside counsel.

“The last hope for consumers and small online business owners is for Congress to take action,” Cox said. “It should be Congress, not the courts, that sets the rules for interstate sales tax collection.”
