Washington state will require businesses to collect sales tax for items shipped to out-of-state customers beginning Monday.
The Washington state Department of Revenue announced the requirement earlier this year after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case South Dakota v. Wayfair.
Online retailers Wayfair, Overstock.com and Newegg challenged a South Dakota law enacted in 2017 that required out-of-state retailers with sales exceeding $100,000 or 200 transactions annually to pay sales tax.
