Other states get on the NY bandwagon:

Posted by salestax on February 12, 2009

****AND ANOTHER:

MD – DEAD  4.13.09; Senate Bill 1071,  Effective June 1st if enacted.

*****UPDATE*****

Yet another state on this bandwagon. 

TN:  Introduced 2/12/09.  Proposed bill (S.B. 1741).  To be effective July 1, 2009, if passed.

Here a fellow blogger tells us about California’s pending legislation to have on-line retailers, who make sales into their state collect sales taxes if they have any type of relationship with a company or individual who recommends their products (i.e. Click here to buy this product – which leads you to Amazon.com).

There has also been a few other states, in addition to CA, that are jumping on this bandwagon:

CT:  if enacted will be effective 4/1/09; see S.B. 806 (introduced by CT Senate on 2/3/09)

HI:  if enacted will be effective 7/1/09 ; see H.B. No. 1405 (introduced by HI House on 1/27/09)

MN: if enacted will be effective 7/1/09 ; see H.F. 401 and S.F. 282 (introduced by MN House and Senate on 1/29/09)

 On a similar note:

CA:  Introduced  a measure CA congressional delegation to join as cosponsors of SSUTA federal legislation that requires out-of-state sellers to collect use tax on remote sales regardless of nexus.   (S.J.R. 1, as introduced January 27, 2009).  This one confuses me… because CA is not a conforming member state of SSUTA and therefore would not benefit if this went through.  But the legislation above would solve this anyway.
