Roughly three months after the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision to allow states to require out-of-state merchants to collect and remit local sales tax on goods sold to their residents, Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio) has introduced legislation that would impose limits on states’ online sales tax bills.

States would not be able to start requiring the collection and remittance of sales taxes from online vendors located out of state until next year under the Protecting Small Business from Burdensome Compliance Costs Act of 2018 that Republican Rep. Bob Gibbs of Ohio introduced last week.

The bill also requires states that want to collect sales tax from out-of-state retailers to:
◾Provide a statewide uniform tax rate that cannot be higher than the highest combined rate of all local and state taxes.
◾Allow out-of-state merchants to remit sales tax to one location.
◾Provide a statewide uniform provision for what items are taxable.
