Supreme Court - Sales Tax

The Supreme Court will hear a case Tuesday on whether to tax online orders delivered to states where the business has no brick and mortar shop or warehouse. Large retailers such as Apple, Macy's, Target and Walmart, which have a physical presence nationwide, generally collect sales tax from customers who buy from them online. But other online sellers, from 1-800 Contacts to home goods site Wayfair, can often sidestep charging the tax.
Supporters want to overturn the ruling in the "Quill vs North Dakota" case that prevented catalog sellers to remit sales taxes.
