Highlights from the 5/6/16 issue of the Weekly State Tax Report:
The Multistate Tax Commission is one step closer to modifying its model allocation and apportionment regulations to reflect a market-based approach to sourcing. Hearing officer Brian Hamer, former director of the Illinois Department of Revenue, recommended revisions to the MTC's proposed regulations implementing amendments to Article IV, Section 17 of the Multistate Tax Compact, which incorporates the Uniform Division of Income for Tax Purposes Act.
Two competing lawsuits over the constitutionality of South Dakota's recently enacted “Quill kill bill” for remote retailers have made their way to the courthouse. S.B. 106 requires out-of-state sellers with annual in-state sales exceeding $100,000, or 200 separate transactions, to collect and remit sales tax, despite their lack of a physical presence in the state.
The expanding maze of markets arising from multiple market-based sourcing regimes has some practitioners anticipating further tensions between taxpayers and tax officials. The states' migration to market sourcing has shown no signs of slowing this year, with Connecticut, Kentucky and Oregon introducing legislation this session.
Issues raised by a pair of law professors in an amicus brief drew the attention of Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court justices during oral arguments in a case involving student loan securitizer First Marblehead Corp. The U.S. Supreme Court remanded the case in October to the SJC to reconsider the state's financial institution excise tax in light of its decision in MarylandComp. of Treas. V. Wynne.
