What South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. Means for Consumers, Retailers, and State Governments
You can view a recording of the live webcast above.
In a landmark decision on June 21, the US Supreme Court ruled on a case involving whether states can require remote sellers to collect sales tax. The decision, in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc., gives states the authority to require remote sellers to collect sales tax. This will have important effects on state governments, consumers, and retailers. To discuss the implications, the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the Urban Institute’s State and Local Finance Initiative are sponsoring a discussion with tax policy experts and a keynote address from Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND). As North Dakota’s tax commissioner, Heitkamp brought Quill Corp. v. North Dakota before the Supreme Court 26 years ago.
