Online sales tax bill introduced at Arizona Legislature

By Brandon Brown |Phoenix Business Journal

New legislation introduced at the Arizona Capitol Wednesday could change the state’s “unfair tax code” and make online retailers subject to Arizona sales tax.

Currently, Arizona law only requires retailers with a physical presence in the state to pay sales tax, but House Bill 2702 would require out-of-state retailers and online marketplace facilitators to collect and remit sales tax on all products.

The bill is meant to be Arizona’s answer to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the South Dakota v. Wayfaircase last summer, which overturned a landmark precedent in the e-commerce sales tax debate. Now states can collect sales tax from companies selling products to residents online, even if the retailer isn’t based there.

Nationally, Arizona is one of just eight states with a sales tax that hasn’t changed their laws to reflect the Supreme Court ruling.
