Court rejects law aimed at online sales taxes
PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota’s Supreme Court has struck down a law that would require outof-state retailers to collect sales taxes on in-state purchases.
The state expected and welcomed Wednesday’s defeat in a case that eventually could have national implications for e-commerce. Attorney General Marty Jackley hopes to persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider rulings it has issued that exempt retailers from having to collect sales taxes in states where they have no physical presence.
