Amazon Sues to Overturn NY Tax Law

On Wednesday I wrote about a new New York state law requiring out of state companies to collect sales tax for purchases made by New York residents. I questioned the legality of the law and said, "I wouldn't be surprised if it's tested in court."

Sure enough, Amazon has filed suit.

The New York Sun article at the subject link has interesting information on the positions held in the case by both New York and Amazon.

The paper notes "Two legal experts said they expected to win."
