Effort renewed to expand Missouri's online sales tax

In an attempt to level the playing field for Missouri businesses, all online retailers could soon be required to pay sales taxes in the state.

Three bills attempting to do just that were brought before the Senate Ways and Means Committee on Thursday, each differing on how to address the resulting increase in state revenue.

These bills are collectively known as "Wayfair bills," a reference to the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court case South Dakota v. Wayfair, which formally allowed state sales taxes to be applied to out-of-state online retailers. Missouri is one of only two states with sales taxes to not also have a Wayfair tax.

Committee Chairperson Sen. Andrew Koenig, R-Manchester, has been pushing for a Wayfair tax since the 2019 legislative session. Similar bills were again proposed during the 2020 session, which was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but they ultimately failed.
