eBay responds to the Wayfair decision articulating their concerns on behalf of their “small Internet-enabled businesses” who could be “forced to collect and remit sales taxes in up to 9,600 jurisdictions nationwide.”
“eBay opposes any attempt to impose Internet sales tax collection burdens on small Internet-enabled businesses that struggle enough as it is to compete with big box retailers. Sales tax legislation needs to be fair to businesses of all sizes.
- Internet sales tax legislation could force small businesses to collect and remit sales taxes in up to 9,600 jurisdictions nationwide.
- It’s fundamentally unfair to treat a small online business the same as a mega-billion dollar retailer with teams of tax attorneys and accountants.
- True state sales tax simplification or an increase to small business exemptions are two options that policymakers should consider.”
