Retailer says new state law contradicts federal law.

Due to a new online sales tax law in South Dakota that took effect May 1, Blue Nile has halted business there for the foreseeable future, Internet Retailer reports. The article says that the law requires large online retailers to collect and remit sales tax, even if they don’t have a physical presence within the state.

“Unfortunately, South Dakota’s law is in direct contradiction to federal law, and we made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend shipping to South Dakota until this unconstitutional law can be addressed,” a spokesman for Blue Nile told the news outlet. “I can’t comment on specific sales figures, but we are disappointed we can no longer ship to our customers in South Dakota.”

Other online retailers may follow in Blue Nile’s footsteps, the article adds.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
