Tony Ehler, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office and a co-chair of the firm’s probate and tax group, was quoted in a Columbus Dispatch story regarding the Supreme Court of the U.S. ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair.  According to the article, the Court found that a state may impose sales and use taxes on remote sellers that lack a physical presence in the state. The decision overturned a prior ruling that had prohibited such tax regimes.

The story states:

“Guidelines at the federal level are definitely needed, said Tony Ehler, a partner in the Columbus office of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease and the co-chair of the law firm’s probate and tax group.

‘I also remain concerned that (the decision) will encourage and promote remote foreign vendors (outside the reach of state tax authorities) at the expense of all domestic vendors,’ Ehler said.”
