The Evolution Of Online Shopping: 22 Ways The World Has Changed Since The Supreme Court Told Congress To Close The Online Sales Tax Loophole
In 1992, the Supreme Court said states could not require out-of-state sellers to collect sales tax (for catalogs silly…there was no such thing as Internet sales back then). The Supreme Court told Congress it was their responsibility to solve this…they still haven’t. A lot has changed in 22 years, and the catalog decision became the online sales tax loophole, which has led to an explosion of online shopping. Main Street retailers are begging Congress to solve this problem, as the world and our economy have dramatically changed over the course of these 22 years.
