Commissioner Caswell’s Statement on South Dakota v. Wayfair U.S. Supreme Court Decision

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Commissioner Taylor Caswell’s statement on the South Dakota v. Wayfair decision handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The Wayfair decision handed down today by the United States Supreme Court tells New Hampshire businesses that they now must collect taxes for politicians in other states that they did not elect. This is unacceptable.

“New Hampshire businesses have never, ever, collected a sales tax and New Hampshire residents have never, ever, paid an income tax.  Imposing this new requirement on us isn’t just an administrative burden, it goes against what New Hampshire stands for:  Live Free or Die.

“The thousands of small businesses that drive our economy must not be forced to become tax collectors for other states. I am working with state leaders to determine a path forward aimed at defending New Hampshire’s business community from this modern-day taxation without representation scheme.”

Our Border is Open for Business

Monday, June 8th, 2009

Let me take this opportunity to invite our neighbors to the south to swing by any of our local retail establishments and experience the cost savings that they can’t realize in their home state.

457927831wjadkx_phJust as neighbors have traditionally invited guests over to share a cup of coffee, I’m inviting Bay State residents to purchase a big screen tv, washer, ATV, kitchen set,  jacuzzi……whatever. Our kind retailers will be happy to meet you at the door with open arms and a great deal for whatever item you’re looking for. Best of all, you won’t notice a hand reaching for your wallet or purse – if the news hasn’t reached your neck of the woods yet, New Hampshire offers NO SALES TAX.

So feel free to rent a U-Haul, hire some muscle and pack up the truck with your new “sales tax free” belongings. New Hampshire is a state that is consistently dedicated to helping you keep more of your money rather than trying to devise devious ways to part you from it.

To learn more about how your Bay State neighbors are benefitting by purchasing goods in New Hampshire, check out Mike McCord’s excellent Seacoast Online piece at http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20090607-NEWS-906070340. And if you really want to make a bold move that could save you major dollars, explore the concept of expanding or relocating a business to the Granite State – to learn more, visit www.nhopeninvitation.com.

In parting, howdy neighbor and SHOP NEW HAMPSHIRE!
