Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to review a decision of the Florida Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of Florida law providing that florists located in Florida are liable for sales tax on internet sales to retail customers out-of-state.
More importantly, this decision could and will likely impact how other states view sales tax when it comes to internet-based sales.
With more and more states struggling to fix budget deficits, internet-based sales are ripe for attack.
