FreedomWorks on Case Affecting Internet Sales Tax

FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s announcement that it would hear a case on a South Dakota law that is designed to challenge the decision in Quill Corp v. North Dakota (1992):

“The South Dakota law in question was passed in 2016 for the sole purpose of challenging the Supreme Court’s decision in Quill. The Supreme Court got it right in Quill, holding that a company must have a physical presence in a state for that state to require the company to collect sales taxes. The Constitution clearly requires that Congress address interstate commerce.

“If the Supreme Court fails to uphold the clear reading of the Constitution and its own precedent, the result will hurt small businesses and undermine the economic growth the country is currently experiencing.”
