New York, NY – Jewelers of America (JA) applauds the decision by the United States Supreme Court to uphold South Dakota’s sales tax fairness law and overturn the 1992 decision in Quill Corp. v. North Dakota. By a vote of 5-4, the Court struck down the earlier judgement, which established the current system under which states are prohibited from collecting sales and use taxes from sellers that do not have a physical presence in-state that led to the current uneven playing field between traditional and online sellers. The decision will enable states to pass laws that require remote retailers to collect sales tax, even if they do not have a physical presence in the state.
