Multistate – Online Commerce – Etsy Responds to U.S. Supreme Court Decision

Etsy responds to the Wayfair decision articulating their concerns on behalf of their “microbusiness” sellers who could potentially face significant challenges of tax collection obligations across multiple states.

“Across Etsy’s platform, 87% of sellers are women, and 97% work from their home. We are microbusinesses in the truest sense, and often wear all the hats in our business operations—from making and acquiring our items, to marketing, packing, shipping, and accounting.

What we need is a simple and fair federal tax solution for microbusinesses, rather than a complex patchwork of state and local tax systems.”
