Protect Arizona Retailers.
Support HB 2702.
Sales tax equity in Arizona
Were you aware that Arizona law currently treats out-of-state retailers more favorably than their in-state counterparts?
Prior to June 2018, states were precluded from imposing a sales tax on purchases made by remote (out-of-state) sellers. However, in June of last year, a landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court overturned that law -- closing a longstanding loophole and allowing states to equitably tax remote out-of-state sellers.
Following the Supreme Court decision, 37 of the 45 states who have a sales tax have taken action ensuring equitable tax treatment for in-state businesses by imposing economic nexus laws on remote sellers.
Arizona is an outlier.
It is now time for Arizona to take action and ensure equity for our in-state retailers.
Arizonans for Main Street Fairness proposes legislation that will do the following:
Provide long-awaited tax equity for Arizona businesses that support our community and provide jobs
Require that out-of-state retailers and marketplace facilitators (Amazon, eBay, etc.) collect and remit sales tax on all products, including those offered by 3rd-party sellers
Provide a safe harbor for small, out-of-state sellers by exempting those with fewer than $100,000 in gross receipts or 200 transactions annually
