Colorado Wins Legal Appeal Over Amazon Tax


Denver Business Journal'

Colorado's so-called "Amazon tax" lives on, thanks to a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, The Denver Post reports.

The ruling, which overturned an earlier federal court decision that the tax was unconstitutional, clears the way for Colorado to begin collecting sales taxes from online retailers. The Colorado Department of Revenue hasn't been able to collect the taxes because of an injunction.

A New York-based trade group, the Direct Marketing Association, had won an injunction against the 2010 law after arguing it unfairly penalized out-of-state retailers.

The appellate court on Tuesday remanded the case to the U.S. District Court in Denver to lif

t the injunction.
