Bill protects consumers
and small businesses
WASHINGTON, DC - After the Supreme Court’s June deci-
sion in South Dakota v. Wayfair making it easier for states
to mandate collection of tax for online sales, Congress-
man Bob Gibbs introduced legislation that will ease the
burden for online vendors to comply with any new online
sales taxes. Considering input from local businesses who
could be severely impacted by the ruling, Gibbs’ bill will
set guidelines for states seeking to expand their sales tax
to online sales for which no nexus exists.
Th e Protecting Small Business from Burdensome Com-
pliance Costs Act will reduce the administrative burden
of these taxes by giving out-of-state vendors the ability
to remit any sales taxes to a single location. Additional
provisions require states to establish and publish what
products are subject to sales tax.
“I’ve heard from many retailers and businesses in my
district who conduct a good deal of business online,”
said Gibbs. “While the Supreme Court’s ruling levels the
playing fi eld, it is another example of a government action
having unintended consequences. Th e Wayfair decision
opened the door for a complex web of state and local sales
taxes that would be impossible for small businesses to
navigate. Complying with a needlessly convoluted tax
structure will raise prices for consumers. My bill balanc-
es the rights of states to collect tax on online sales while
protecting consumers and small businesses from facing
an undue burden.”
Main provisions of the bill include:
States cannot retroactively collect sales tax for previous
interstate sales where no nexus existed.
States that want to collect sales tax from out of state ven-
dors who do not have a nexus, must enact legislation that:
Provides a statewide uniform tax rate that cannot be
higher than the highest combined rate of all local and
Permits out of state vendors to remit sales taxes to one
Provides a statewide uniform provision for what is
Vendors that have nexus operate as they currently do.
Th is legislation would establish a “Start Date”, not before
Jan. 1, 2019 for states to require collection and remittance
of sales tax by out of state sellers.
