What is South Dakota v. Wayfair, and what does it mean for you?
What is Wayfair?
Prior to the ruling, online sellers were only required to collect sales tax in states where the seller had a physical presence. In June 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the State of South Dakota. In doing so, the Supreme Court eliminated the physical presence requirement.
Now, a state can require an online seller to collect tax on any sale that takes place within the state’s borders.
Who does Wayfair affect?
This decision means that organizations will now have to collect and pay sales tax to any state that requires it.
Many groups will be impacted, including: online retailers, consumers, government and jurisdictional entities, tax compliance businesses and software providers, and retail service providers.
How will Wayfair impact you?
States can now decide, on a state-by-state basis, to impose sales tax obligations on online sellers.
Businesses will need to collect sales tax and pay the states that require it. Tax software solutions and service providers will have additional work to ensure their clients remain compliant.
