Supreme Court Ruling Changes Landscape of Sales Across State Lines
Earlier this year, the Supreme Court overruled a previous decision that protected businesses who were not physically present in a state from the requirement to collect and remit sales tax for products/services sold to customers in that state. Many sales that were previously exempt because they were being made across state lines may now be taxable and the retailers may now be required to register for, collect, and remit sales tax in states they are not physically located in.
