Arkansas House Approves Online Sales Tax Bill

Indirect Tax, Sales and Use Tax April 1, 2011

On Wednesday the Arkansas House voted 62-28 to pass SB738, a so called Amazon Bill. SB 738 would require out-of-state retailers to collect Arkansas sales taxes if their annual sales in the state exceed $10,000. The bill would apply to retailers that have online affiliates in Arkansas who directly or indirectly refer customers for a commission or some other consideration. The bill is, as of this morning, on the Governor’s desk waiting to be signed.
