The high court has said for more than 50 years in various rulings that states can not collect taxes from sellers without a "physical presence" in those states.

"This ruling clears the way for a fair and level playing field where all retailers compete under the same sales tax rules whether they sell merchandise online, in-store or both". Expected to generate more than $24 billion for the state government in the current fiscal year, the sales tax is the single largest source of funding for the state. All but five states impose sales taxes.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. dissented in an opinion joined by Justices Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. While the Supreme Court spoke approvingly of the law, it sent it back to South Dakota's highest court to be revisited in light of the court's decision.
Some popular "e-tailers" already collected at least some state sales tax. "Big victory for fairness and for our country". They had resulted in some companies not collecting sales tax on every online purchase.
