WASHINGTON — Retailers and online sellers, including Neiman Marcus Group and Amazon.com, are lining up behind legislation introduced Wednesday that would enable states to collect sales taxes from out-of-state merchants regardless of whether they have a physical presence in the state.
The debate over taxing Web sales has taken place in Washington for more than a decade without any resolution, but brick-and-mortar retailers and a former opponent to online sales tax collection — Amazon.com — said lawmakers have now found the right solution.
