Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in Wayfair that upheld South Dakota’s statute imposing a sales tax on internet sales to its residents when the seller has no physical presence within the State. Justice Kennedy’s 5-4 decision held that the historical “physical presence” test would no longer be a constitutional impediment to the imposition of sales taxes on sales by out-of-state companies to in-state residents. Wayfair was “teed-up” for the Supreme Court for the express purpose of overturning the National Bella Hess and Quill Corp. decisions that held that a state cannot impose on an out-of-state retailer the obligation to collect sales tax on sales made into that state unless that retailer also had a physical presence within the state.
