Businesses in the sharing economy have experienced rapid growth and have challenged traditional business transactions that archaic policies and laws cannot adequately address. Businesses in the transportation (Uber), entertainment (Netflix), retail (Amazon), gaming (Draft Kings) and hospitality (Airbnb) industries have experienced swift growth and are most effected by dated regulations. Therefore, these industries are on the front lines of policy reform as taxation, regulatory, and legislative concerns continue to rise predominantly at the local or state level; among them:

Ohio, South Dakota, Alabama, and Massachusetts are only a few states with cases pertaining to nexus and cross-border state taxation that potentially could go to the Supreme Court and challenge Quill.

The path forward for success is clear, as state and federal governments are called to work together with new businesses to create cooperative, mutually beneficial outcomes that allow innovative businesses to thrive and states to govern under inclusive policies.
Playing by New Rules: Industry Outlook
A look into the conflicts of the sharing economy as businesses and states battle policies primarily around public safety, labor, and taxation. Lawmakers struggle to respond causing lengthy labor disputes and other legislative battles to drag on and intensify. These debates will only continue as regulators attempt to catch up with innovation and public demand. Among these issues are:
