New Hampshire Bill Aims to Protect State Businesses from Effects of Wayfair Decision

The New Hampshire Senate unanimously approved S.B. 242 last week, a bipartisan bill that aims to protect state businesses from the effects of last year's Wayfair decision, which allows states to impose sales and use tax regulations on e-retailers and other out-of-state sellers that do not have a physical presence in the state but that do meet dollar or transaction thresholds that create an economic nexus.

Online Retailers May Get Post-Wayfair Relief

Help may be coming for retailers concerned with the abrupt change in the law last year that may require many retailers to begin collecting tax on sales to customers in a state regardless of whether the retailer has a physical presence in the state. In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court's holding in Wayfair v. South Dakota allowed states to require remote retailers to collect taxes and fees on sales in their state if the seller was deemed to have an economic nexus with the state, regardless of any physical presence. On January 9, 2019, relief legislation was announced, known as the "Protecting Business from Burdensome Compliance Cost Act," which would delay the imposition of new laws to January 1, 2020, and would require states to streamline the tax rate and submission requirements.  Click here to read about HR 379.

The South Dakota Nexus Plot Thickens...

Not surprisingly, a recent declaratory action has challenged South Dakota's bold move to require many out-of-state sellers to register with the state and begin collecting sales tax (previously discussed here). American Catalog Mailers Associations and NetChoice v. Gerlach questions the constitutionality of the economic nexus legislation based upon the physical presence rule from Quill Corp. v. North Dakota.
