New York Times Editorial Board Agrees with Us

In an editorial today, the New York Times came down firmly on the side collecting online sales tax and against Amazon’s efforts against affiliate nexus laws.

We were particularly pleased to see the Times acknowledge what we’ve long argued: “Collecting state taxes is not an unreasonable burden for online retailers.”

While the editorial doesn’t mention the Main Street Fairness Act by name, it does end with this statement:

“The best outcome would be for Congress to pass legislation requiring all retailers, online and off, to collect sales taxes everywhere they are due.”

We couldn’t agree more.
