Charging internet sales tax in Louisiana might be much more complicated than you think...

Source: - Sep 19, 2018

Louisiana is setting itself up for a massive lawsuit if the state, as planned, starts charging sales taxes on internet purchases Jan. 1 and doesn’t dramatically alter the way those taxes are collected and remitted, according to a respected Washington think tank.

June’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Wayfair v. South Dakota gave states the ability to collect sales taxes from website sellers in different states. The 5-4 opinion also opened the possibility of legal action for those states with a collection and remittance system that is too burdensome for out-of-state vendors.
