Bill to Hasten Start of Indiana Online Sales Tax Collection Stalls in State Senate

Republican state senators in Indiana have blocked a vote on a bill that would force Amazon.com and some other online-only retailers to start collecting Indiana's seven percent sales tax this summer.

The bill, which had cleared the House by a wide margin, was scheduled for a Senate vote Thursday until the Senate Republican caucus decided to have the measure pulled for more negotiations.

The bill would require Amazon to start online sales tax collection in July, six months earlier than under a deal that former Gov. Mitch Daniels brokered with the company last year.

Indiana House Lawmakers Reject Online Sales Tax Delay

The Indiana House has rejected an attempt to delay when Amazon.com and other online-only retailers might have to start collecting the state's sales tax from customers.

House members in a voice vote today kept July 1 as the date when online retailers would have to start charging Indiana's 7 percent  sales tax. That would be six months earlier than planned under a deal former Gov. Mitch Daniels brokered with Amazon.

Republican Rep. David Wolkin argued the tax requirement shouldn't start until Jan. 1 because the state has an obligation with Amazon.
