New Hampshire – Hassan Talks Internet Sales Taxes


PITTSFIELD — As state treasuries reap the benefits of a 2018 Supreme Court decision that paved the way for the taxation of online purchases, U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan is calling on her Congressional colleagues to pump the breaks.

During a visit to NobleSpirit, a Pittsfield business that sells rare stamps, coins and other antiques via eBay, Hassan, D-NH, met with a group of Granite State web merchants to discuss how the court’s decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. has impacted their businesses.
