Online Giant Amazon to collect Nebr Sales Tax

Postby nebugeater » Fri Dec 23, 2016 2:02 pm

Starting in Jan of 2017 Amazon will start to collect Sales tax for Nebraska Purchases.

This is only fair IMO and you should have been paying them on your tax return anyway. AS more and more purchased move on line this will be the norm and not the exception.

From a story in Jan 2016 they were collecting in 28 states at that time covering 84% of the population base.

This decision was inevitable. The United States Supreme Court signaled that they would potentially revisit the physical presence standard that online retailers use to thwart having to collect sales tax. Plus Amazon is becoming more of a physical retailer with its added value service offerings. One could also speculate that the news could be a signal for Amazon Fresh grocery service in the metro area, data center, or other physical investment in the foreseeable future.
