VIRGINIA – Northam Nixes Online Sales Tax Set-Aside For Amazon

The legislature wanted to start collecting money in July 2020 to eventually pay Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN). The first $40 million was going to come from the state’s internet sales tax revenue. But Northam’s revised fiscal year 2020 budget strikes that provision from the bill. Lawmakers will have an opportunity to approve or deny his amendment when they reconvene Wednesday.
