Online Sales Taxes After Supreme Court Ruling in Wayfair
with Jared Gordon, McCormick Barstow, LLP.(see biography below)

Throughout the history of online commerce, states have been prohibited from collecting taxes from out-of-state merchants under Quill Corp. v North Dakota. That was until South Dakota v Wayfair decided in June in a 5-4 decision which reversed Quill’s physical nexus requirement since it had created “artificial competitive advantages.”  Jared Gordan will explain what this ruling means, the parameters for states seeking to collect sales taxes under this ruling and Congressional legislation to clarify how the process should work.
