The 26th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court's decision to forgive some online merchants for sales tax sales laws to consumers, online sellers must be prepared to deal with the industry downturn.
South Dakota has filed a lawsuit against major e-commerce companies that do not obey the tax bill, and these e-commerce companies also counterclaim, the final result needs the Supreme Court to decide. The state government legislated in March 2016 to require that online sellers outside the state charge consumers excise tax if they sell $ 100,000 in the state or trade more than 200 within a year. After a deadline, the state government filed a lawsuit against several large e-commerce companies, including Overstock.com and Wayfair. In the meantime, the state government of Alabama has also signed a law in early 2016 requiring that e-commerce companies and sellers, including those without physical facilities, also need sales tax in the state, including stores and warehouses.
