Why the Change in Tax Collection?

In June 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States announced a decision in the South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. case. South Dakota argued that it was losing out on local sales taxes as consumers spent more money shopping online rather than in brick-and-mortar locations. The 1992 Quill Corp v. North Dakota case had set a precedent for how states would eventually deal with online retailers. Back then, the court ruled in favor of Quill Corp, which it agreed did not need to collect sales tax on sales in North Dakota because it had no physical presence in the state.

The June 2018 decision by the supreme court  removed the previous precedent and opens the door for states to begin forcing online retailers to collect and remit local sales taxes. Online retailers are now forced with adapting to a variety of different sales tax rates and rules across the nation. Nexus laws are constantly changing, and Mr. Lock is making every attempt to keep abreast of the changes.
