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.
