No topic in the state tax world is more controversial than the potential imposition of sales and use tax collection responsibilities on remote vendors (i.e., retailers lacking substantial nexus with the state at issue), David A. Fruchtman, chair of Rimon P.C.’s State and Local (Subnational) Taxation practice, writes in this week’s issue of the Bloomberg BNA Weekly State Tax Report. In his article, Fruchtman urges that any federal legislation to require state sales tax collections by remote vendors should exclude sales of services.
