Real Estate and Business Organizations Oppose Legislation Challenging Supreme Court Decision on Internet Sales Tax
September 17, 2018
The business coalition letter to Senate and House leadership explains that over the better part of a decade, these industry groups "have undertaken significant efforts to establish economic parity between online and brick-and-mortar sellers that would better reflect the changing dynamics of today's omnichannel marketplace. For Congress to insert themselves post-ruling only creates additional uncertainty and further complicates the implementation process, while undermining the level playing field created by the Wayfair decision."
The eight organizations conclude the letter by offering to work with Congress on any problems that may arise from state implementation of remote internet sales tax collection allowed by Wayfair.
