The United States Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in a case with huge potential impact on New Hampshire businesses, as well as anyone who shops online.

The case essentially pits the 45 states that impose a sales tax against the handful that don’t, including the Granite State.

On Thursday, the State of New Hampshire filed a legal brief in the U.S. Supreme Court case South Dakota v. Wayfair, which is scheduled for oral arguments later this month.

The case could have huge ramifications for how businesses collect sales taxes when selling goods to customers across state lines.

The state of New Hampshire is weighing in on an upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case that could reshape how sales tax is collected across state lines.

This fall, Granite Staters will vote on a constitutional amendment that would forever forbid the adoption of broad-based income taxes.  Supporters say enshrining this principle will protect what they’ve long called “The New Hampshire Advantage”,while opponents predict it’ll tie the hands of future leaders to address state priorities.   We'll look at both sides of this debate.
