"One report says West Virginia stands to have the second-biggest gain on a percentage basis in the country by collecting on online sales", he said. Even before the Supreme Court's ruling, however, Amazon had said it was moving to collect state sales taxes on its inventory sold in all 45 states with statewide taxes.

Beginning in 2014, as part of a compromise, Tennessee started collecting sales tax from online Amazon purchases because the behemoth online retailer had a physical presence in state with warehouses and distribution centers in Chattanooga, Lebanon and Murfreesboro.


States also still must announce dates by which retailers must be in compliance, says Scott Peterson, a vice president at Avalara, a manufacturer of tax collection software.

A lot has changed since 1992. (Remember your first Cyber Monday?) Last year, e-commerce sales totaled $450 billion, or about 13 percent of all retail activity. To be compliant with the Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement, a State must administer one tax rate. Brick-and-mortar gets some relief.

He explained, "There are a small handful of states that may, in pretty short order, announce that they are enforcing existing economic nexus standards which, under the law, took effect immediately upon the Supreme Court Decision (North Dakota and Vermont)". The use tax Many states have a use tax equivalent to the sales tax that applies to online purchases but most online businesses do not comply with it. That will bring Springfield millions of dollars while closing a loophole that hurt IL retailers. The ruling should also eliminate the need for the kind of workarounds that MA regulators have recently devised to snare more online vendors, such as arguing that Internet "cookies" constituted a physical presence, a policy Kennedy cited as he dispensed with the physical-presence test.
