N.Y.'s Top Court Upholds Online Sales Tax Collection

Amazon.com Inc. and other out-of-state online retailers must collect state tax on New York state customers, the state's highest court ruled, a decision at odds with other courts that could set the stage for a showdown in the U.S. Supreme Court. The case, combining two brought by Amazon and Overstock.com Inc, was decided by the New York State Court of Appeals by a vote of 4-1.
