The Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal castigated Republican members of Congress for trying to slip a major sales tax law into a spending bill. Many parties are hoping to overturn Quill and it looks like Congress is also hoping to change it. We'll give you our take on this new development.

Also, we'll answer a question Mike got from Seth Fineberg: What's the number one sales tax issue e-commerce sellers face? It's really 3 questions they have: (1) Do I really have to collect sales tax on my online sales in the US? (2) If so, in what states? (3) If so, when should I start doing it?
