Correction: Hawaii has not adopted Streamlined Sales Tax Legislation

Oops, we got this wrong.  While the Hawaii Senate overrode Governor Lingle’s veto, the House did not.  So the Streamlined Sales Tax amendments did not pass in Hawaii.

Many thanks to the distinguished Senator Fukunaga  for pointing out this error to us .

The Hawaii state legislature just overrode a last minute veto by Governor Lingle to pass Hawaii Senate Bill 1678.

This is particularly important for Hawaii as the state is a large scale net purchaser of goods from other states.

Congratulations to the great state of Hawaii!

    Dear FedTax,
    Please correct your information. The Hawaii State Senate voted to override Governor Lingle’s veto of SB 1678, but the State House of Representatives did not join in the override action. The veto therefore stands.

    Please see Honolulu Advertiser article:http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/20090716/NEWS01/907160340/Hawaii+Legislature+allows+veto+of+oil+tax++overrides+38+others

    thank you,
    Carol Fukunaga
