BREAKING NEWS: US Supreme Court Overturns Quill

Today the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision in the South Dakota v. Wayfair case–South Dakota (and brick-and-mortar retailers everywhere) won. This means states can require retailers to collect sales tax regardless of physical nexus–all retailers are equal.

Here’s the Court’s decision. It was a 5-4 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented.

The HFA has been working on leveling the playing field for furniture retailers for several years now–decades if you consider the work started in the 1980s against trans-shippers. Marketplace Fairness has been the hot topic of every advocacy fly-in and many calls to action. Your voices were heard! Thank you to all of the members and the members of the Government Relations Action Team for your tenacity and diligence on this issue.

We’ll be looking at the decision in more detail and discussing next steps and how this unfolds so stay tuned!
