US justices' closed ears on state sales tax case

CNBC reports:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to tackle the long-standing question of whether Internet retailers like should be required to collect sales taxes in states where they have no physical presence.

In a case brought by Amazon and, 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.
