The California Senate and Assembly have overwhelmingly passed a compromise bill that delays California's effort to force online retailers such as Amazon.com to collect the state's sales taxes while retailers lobby Congress for national rules governing online sales taxes.
Democratic Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner of Berkeley, one of the bill's authors, called it a ground-breaking agreement that could help level the playing field between traditional and online retailers.
"We finally will give certainty to our California businesses ... that the unfair tax advantage that has been enjoyed by out-of-state online retailers will finally end," Skinner said before the vote. "While it will not end this instant, it will end."
