From Website Links to Collection Points
NRF notes that there are 3 federal proposals but does not take a stand on any particular version. Instead, NRF notes: "NRF strongly supports federal legislation that would make it easier for states to require all Internet retailers to collect sales tax in the same way as local stores."
I think something is going to pass - probably S. 1832 (112th Congress) because it helps states that adopted the SSUTA as well as states that have not and probably will not. If non-SSUTA states enact the simplifications specified in S. 1832, they would be able to get remote vendors (but not de minimus ones) collect sales tax. With states eager for funds and Congress unable to give them much given federal budget problems, passing S. 1832 would be a way to indirectly get money to states.
