Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Internet Sales Tax Cases

New York implemented a law that imposes sales tax collection duties on some out-of-state retailers that are not physically present in the state. The law requires out-of-state retailers engaged in "affiliate marketing" to collect sales tax. Affiliate marketing occurs when the retailer enters a contract with a third party (the affiliate) who operates an independent website. Under the contract, the affiliate agrees to provide on its website a link that directs readers to the retailer's website in exchange for a percentage of the sales made to readers who use the link.
