Two weeks ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4, in favor of South Dakota, that states can collect sales tax from online retailers. The decision overturned its historic physical presence nexus standard that was decided in the 1992 case Quill Corp. v. North Dakota.
Dover Dixon Horne member Matt Boch spoke to a number of media outlets on this monumental decision on topics ranging from the effect it will have on Amazon and its marketplace and how the ruling could change how consumers shop to retroactive application in Arkansas.
Matt told Law360’s [subscription required] Maria Koklanaris that the road map in Arkansas is pretty obvious as it’s a the state a Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement state. He added that retroactive application is going to be a big deal in larger states.
