The question of whether online retailers are obligated to collect state sales taxes has been a contentious one. Now a major case is going to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“A reversal could mean that all online retailers must collect sales tax everywhere. It’s an issue that brick-and-mortar retailers insist will provide a level playing field with online competitors, and help to provide state and local governments with the tax revenue they deserve.”
P.S. Walmart is already collecting sales taxes on behalf of all states that have a sales tax. Check out our E-Commerce class to learn more about getting your products Walmart.com.
