GOP wants to repeal Colo. online tax law
DENVER — Republican state lawmakers say a federal judge’s decision to block a Colorado law affecting larger out-of-state, online retailers shows it’s unconstitutional and should be repealed.
Judge Robert Blackburn said the law places an undue burden on out-of-state retailers and violates interstate commerce laws.
GOP House Majority Leader Amy Stephens says the law should be repealed. Democratic Sen. Rollie Heath said it only enforced a law already on the state’s books.
The law requires retailers who don’t collect state sales tax to send their customers an annual notice of how much tax the customers should pay Colorado. It also requires retailers to provide the state with a list of customers.
