2017 will mark the 25th anniversary of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that has exempted many online retailers from having to collect sales tax on purchases. However, according to Internet Retailer, it could also be the year when that exemption ends. To mark the anniversary and help online retailers stay on top of potential legislative changes, our friends at Avalara and Internet Retailer have provided access to a fantastic eBook that all of us who operate online businesses should read, The Online Sales Tax Showdown.
