NH House Rejects Bill Aiming To Stop Sales Tax Collection

A NH House session on Wednesday July 25, 2018 killed a proposal offered by a bi-partisan task force that would require states and other taxing jurisdictions to register with the attorney general's office, pay fees and prove compliance with state laws and the Constitution before collecting taxes.

A June 21, 2018 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on online shopping prompted a special session by the NH legislature to look at the effect this will have on NH businesses with on-line offerings.

The bill failed and will not see action until the legislature convenes in January of 2019.

An article in the Thursday Portsmouth Hearld found below describes the session and the results of the votes.
