The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to tackle the long-standing question of whether Internet retailers like Amazon.com should be required to collect sales taxes in states where they have no physical presence.
In a case brought by Amazon and Overstock.com, the Supreme Court was asked to decide whether a New York state law that requires online retailers to collect taxes is valid under the U.S. Constitution. Because the court declined to hear the case, the retailers' challenge to that law has failed.
