Great Article: The Marketplace Equity Act: The New Competition on the Block
from Sylvia F. Dion at www.salestaxsupport.com
At the time Sylvia wrote this, there were two bills in Congress to allow states to force tax collection on companies that do not have nexus in their state (what have been commonly and annoyingly called the Amazon.com laws). Now there are three such pieces of legislation that have been introduced. I try to avoid looking at proposed laws until someone actually signs them. Thank goodness Sylvia finds this interesting, and she's written a nice summary and comparison of the first two bills. I'm sure that the third bill will fall under her pen shortly.
In the meantime, if you want to get up to speed on the concepts and the first two versions, here ya go.
This link is part of a series called "Excellent articles that I wish I had written." The short name is "Great Articles." Enjoy.
