Mississippi internet sales tax would challenge legal precedent

Some tax experts and conservative groups are questioning a proposed Mississippi regulation that would require large sellers to collect taxes on internet sales. Revenue Commissioner Herb Frierson agrees that the rule, not yet enacted, would directly challenge decades of U.S. Supreme Court precedent. He says challenging the court to reconsider past rulings is the point. Though Mississippi lawmakers are considering a bill to tax internet sales, Frierson is moving forward with his own plan.
