Maryland – Give online sales tax revenue back to Marylanders

“For the first half of 2018, Maryland leaders were preoccupied with Amazon.com, assembling an $8.5 billion incentive package to attract the online giant’s second headquarters to the state. Maryland’s brick-and-mortar shops could be excused for feeling ignored.

Then on June 21, the tide turned in favor of Maryland’s streetside businesses when the Supreme Court ruled in South Dakota v. Wayfairthat states can assess sales tax on goods sold online to state residents even if the online merchants are out of state. Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot (D) was “exceedingly pleased” with the ruling because it reversed a “fundamentally outdated and unfair” decision from 1992 that had prevented states from collecting online sales taxes.”
