SCOTUS Overturns Quill: States Can Tax Online Sales

SCOTUS Overturns Quill: States Can Tax Online Sales | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in the state and local tax world which overturns precedent going back to 1992. The decision, South Dakota v. Wayfair, No.17-494 (June 21, 2018), means that state and local taxing jurisdictions throughout the country can now compel online sellers to collect sales tax for sales made to customers in that particular state or local jurisdiction, even if the seller does not have a presence there.

The Court clarified that nexus is required to compel sales tax collection, but the required level of nexus will no longer be based on a physical presence test as articulated in Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, 504 U.S. 298 (1992). Quill stood for the proposition that a seller cannot be compelled to collect a state’s sales tax absent having physical presence in the taxing state.

U.S. provides aid worth $320 million a year to Mexico; experts say yanking it could hurt | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

According to the U. S. Agency for International Development, roughly a dozen agencies directed roughly $1.6 billion overall in aid to Mexico from 2011 to 2015, the most recent year for which complete data is available.

The State Department, Defense Department and USAID provided the largest amounts, accounting for 95% of the $338 million in aid in 2015. The remainder included much smaller slivers from the departments of Energy, Labor, Interior, and Health and Human Services, and the Peace Corps, among others.

Law enforcement and counter-narcotics initiatives accounted for $260 million, while support for justice and legal reforms added up to roughly $10 million, and military aid accounting for another $10 million. The other aid initiatives in 2015 include:

 

• $5.7 million for a program to improve the competitiveness of Mexican businesses and to improve “environmental policy management to mitigate climate change and preserve Mexican biodiversity.”

• $4.4 million to help with implementation of programs to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.

• $ 4 million to support Mexican-led efforts to develop and implement a low-emissions development strategy.

• $4 million for crime and violence prevention.

Women in communication earn less, experience negative company cultures and still face a glass ceiling | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

FIU’s Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Centerreleased the results of a national survey that found that women are more likely to be in middle management or junior level positions in the communication industries, while men dominate top management positions.

In addition, the survey found that the culture of the company most often prevents women from being promoted and keeps them from advancing in their careers and that women are more likely to spend fewer years in the communications professions than men, lacking longevity in their current positions.
