New Mississippi regulation requires out-of-state sellers to collect sales and use tax

Download RFP
Mississippi recently adopted a regulation requiring certain out-of-state retailers to collect tax on sales made in Mississippi, despite a lack of physical presence. The regulation appears to contradict the U.S. Supreme Court’s conclusion in Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, a decision based on the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution requiring out-of-state retailers to have physical presence in a state before a state can require the retailer to collect and remit sales and use tax.
