The Supreme Court has declined to review the lawsuit by Amazon and Overstock challenging New York State's 2008 law requiring them to collect sales tax.
American Booksellers Association CEO Oren Teicher commented: "It's heartening that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision has put to rest any legal question as to a state's ability to collect sales tax on Internet sales. And while we continue to strongly support a federal solution to sales tax fairness, today's action makes clear that individual states can enact legislation to level the playing field."
Amazon repeatedly says it supports sales tax collection but only if federally mandated. The Senate passed such a bill earlier this year, but the House has not acted on it. Meanwhile, the company has fought state laws requiring collection of sales tax tooth and nail.
