When New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill last month to help the state grapple with the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Wayfair ruling, the measure had bipartisan support in the Legislature.
The retail community, on the other hand, wasn’t quite as unified.
The bill, named after the international online retailer, is aimed at discouraging other states from imposing sales taxes on goods purchased online from New Hampshire retailers.
The Granite State has no sales tax – along with no income tax and the lowest poverty rate in the United States, a fact it partially attributes to the tax situation – and many in the government consider it an advantage that out-of-state customers can buy New Hampshire products online without paying sales tax.
