CONCORD – House Republican Leader Dick Hinch issued a statement following the House vote on SB242, which will protect New Hampshire businesses from out-of-state jurisdictions attempting to impose a sales tax on them.
It requires notice and approval of certain actions to commence audits of collection liabilities arising under certain sales and use tax statutes and prohibiting New Hampshire remote sellers from disclosing private customer information to foreign taxing authorities in connection with the collection of certain sales and use taxes. The House voted 308-25 to pass the bill.
“This bill is the product of a year of research and collaboration between the legislature and executive branch to find a streamlined solution to protect New Hampshire businesses, and New Hampshire interests as a result of the Wayfair decision,” Hinch said. “This is truly a rock solid bipartisan effort, but our work may not be over. I look forward to continuing to work on this issue as the legal landscape develops. We must continue to be vigilant and not turn our state’s small businesses and entrepreneurs in to tax collecting agents for other states and jurisdictions!”
