Marketplace Fairness Coalition Statement On SCOTUS Granting Cert

January 12, 2018

Washington D.C. – Today, in response to the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States to grant the petition for a writ of certiorari in the matter of South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. et. al., the Marketplace Fairness Coalition issued the following statement:

"We applaud the Supreme Court's decision to take action in the process of overturning the Quill precedent. The recognition of the limitations of pre-internet era policies is of great importance to merchants across the country. While litigation proceeds, we will continue to work with Congress on a federal solution to close the online sales tax loophole and protect all interstate sellers. Job creators deserve a solution to the complex patchwork of state and local laws. Congress must act to establish a simpler standard by passing E-Fairness legislation."
