Statement On The Marketplace Nexus Language In Minnesota’s Budget

Internet Association Vice President, State Government Affairs, Dustin Brighton released the following statement on the marketplace nexus language in Minnesota’s budget:

“Minnesota’s new budget contains language that places harmful tax obligations upon online marketplaces that will stifle business in the state and make it harder for internet companies to operate. This language is likely unconstitutional and forces online marketplaces to collect and remit sales taxes.

“The internet economy represents 67,000 jobs and 9 percent of Minnesota’s economy. This marketplace tax will slow the growth of any North Star State company trying to do business online for years to come.”
