"This is a disastrous decision for New Hampshire's economy and does not take into account the day-to-day challenges of running a small business", Sen. A bipartisan group of senators filed a brief in the case supporting South Dakota's effort to overturn the online sales tax ban, essentially acknowledging that the legislative body was too dysfunctional to fix the problem.

Online shoppers could find costs going up after the Supreme Court did away Thursday with a decades-old precedent limiting the ability of states to collect sales tax on certain out-of-state Internet purchases.

South Dakota is leading the legal charge, passing a law requiring the collection of sales tax on Internet vendors with at least 200 yearly transactions or $100,000 in sales to its residents. Sellers who use eBay and Etsy, which provide platforms for smaller sellers, also aren't required to collect sales tax nationwide.

North Dakota - was "flawed on its own terms" and was especially problematic due to the rise of internet retail. Kennedy wrote that the unfairness of the tax collection situation also could be an incentive to avoid opening storefronts or distribution centers in states such as Florida, just to avoid collecting the sales tax.
