NPR covers the Main Street Fairness Act


States Try To Collect Online Retail Sales Tax

With last week’s passage of affiliate nexus legislation in Illinois making headlines, Robert Siegel of NPR’s “All Things Considered” interviewed Forbes executive editor Janet Novack about online sales tax.

Ms. Novak has written about this subject extensively; in fact, we’ve blogged about an article of hers in the past. In her NPR interview, she provides a clear, concise, and accessible description of the problems facing states and the logical position Amazon has taken—that “Congress [needs to] to pass a national law that requires collection by everyone […] but in the interim, we’re not going to disadvantage ourselves by collecting.”

You can listen to the interview (4 minutes, 15 seconds) or read a transcript of it here. As always, we welcome your comments.
