Court re­jects law aimed at on­line sales taxes

Houston Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

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.
