Idaho – Legislation Introduced To Collect Sales Tax On Online Retail, Upholding Wayfair Decision

BOISE — To comply with the U.S. Supreme Court’s South Dakota vs. Wayfair Inc. decision, which allows states to collect internet sales and use tax, legislation was introduced on Tuesday that could bring an additional $30 million to a new Idaho tax relief fund. 

The bill, sponsored by Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, is meant to set up the process requiring internet sellers to collect and remit state sales taxes on online retail and e-commerce, much like local retailers. It was unanimously introduced in the House Revenue & Taxation Committee, clearing the way for a full hearing later.
