Most online sales in Arizona will be subject to state sales taxes after the Legislature and governor approved a plan to require online retailers who do more than $200,000 in sales in Arizona to collect the tax.

That threshold will go down in subsequent years. This comes after a ruling last year from the U.S. Supreme Court, in a case known as South Dakota v. Wayfair, which essentially said states could require online retailers to collect sales taxes, even if they don’t have a physical presence in that state. The Arizona Retailers Association was among those pushing for this change.

Michelle Ahlmer is the group’s executive director, and The Show spoke with her about what this all means.
