A Denver judge has granted a request to temporarily block a 2010 law aimed at requiring remote sellers, including online merchants, to collect sales tax. The injunction comes after an August decision, where a U.S. court of appeals reversed a previous injunction that was put into place by U.S. District Court Judge Robert Blackburn. The previous injunction was reversed on the grounds that Blackburn had overstepped his authority with the injunction (see story here). The current injunction is only temporary, and will stay in place until the case is resolved further.
According to CCH, Kentucky has issued a reminder that out-of-state tax payers (remote sellers) that have sales of more than $100,000 and are not required to collect and remit sales tax, are required to provide notice to their customers that they owe use tax on the purchase.
