Gov. Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement today regarding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that states can collect sales tax from online retailers:
“A lot about our world and economy has changed in the 26 years since our nation’s highest court last ruled on this issue.
With the incredible evolution of technologies and the growth of internet sales, this Supreme Court ruling will help level the playing field between our Hoosier-based companies that operate retail stores and out-of-state companies that sell products and services online in our state.
We’re taking a careful look at the ruling to better understand its implications for Indiana.”
