State of Wayfair: Don’t Back Away from Streamlining

Overview


Stephen Kranz, speaking at a Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board “emergency” meeting, said that Wayfair is not an opportunity to “water down” the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement. “There are people out there looking for opportunities to challenge Wayfair. If states don’t live by what’s stated in the ruling, there will be challenges,” especially against states that try to require tax collection without embracing streamlined concepts, he said.
