From Lisa Soronen at National League of Cities: In South Dakota v. Wayfair the Supreme Court ruled that states and local governments can require vendors with no physical presence in the state to collect sales tax. According to the Court, in a 5-4 decision, "economic and virtual contacts" are enough to create a "substantial nexus" with the state allowing the state to require collection.
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court by a vote of 5-4 overturned the Quill case which prevented the collection of sales tax on out-of-state vendors who had no physical presence in the state.
