Next time you buy something from an out-of-state seller, you may end up paying sales tax.

Right now, many out-of-state retailers don’t collect sales — they aren’t required to — but a Supreme Court ruling last year gave states the right to collect sales tax from out-of-state companies who have more than $100,000 in sales.

Arizona lawmakers gave the go ahead for the Arizona Department of Revenue to start collecting that tax this week.

To learn more, The Show spoke with Grant Nulle, deputy director for the Arizona Department of Revenue.

He explained how to they will identify which out-of-state sellers need to collect and pay the tax and how Arizona will get that information.
