Will More Online Retailers Have to Charge Sales Tax?

According to Monica Langley, writing in the Wall Street Journal, more states seem to be moving toward collecting sales tax on online puchases, regardless of whether the online firms have a physical presence in those states. This has been a long-term goal of traditional store-based retailers — that want a more level playing field: “The move toward taxing online sales has broad implications. Online shopping will become more expensive for consumers. Brick-and-mortar retailers won’t have the price disadvantage they now have compared with online sellers. Strapped states suddenly could be flush with $23 billion in new annual revenue, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.”
