Supreme Court Ruling In South Dakota V. Wayfair Inc. Updates Physical Nexus Standards And Sales Tax Collection Policies, Keith Lowe, Cassandra W. Chandler, Julie Staples

Southern University College of Business E-Journal

In the case of South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc., the U.S. Supreme Court overturned controlling cases addressing standards and guidelines for sales tax collections.

This research paper examines several issues leading to this recent Supreme Court decision. Additionally, coordinated state efforts in 2000 led to what would …
