MILWAUKEE -- Online retailers will now be able to collect sales tax on online orders from residents in 10 states, including Wisconsin, as of October 1.

The sales tax collection statutes and regulations apply to online retailers that do not have a physical presence in the taxing jurisdiction of the state.

This comes after the Supreme Court overturned its previous precedent that required a business to have a physical presence, or nexus, in a state in order to be subject to local taxes. 

The other states included in the in the new laws are Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Michigan, North Dakota and Washington. Similar laws will go ito effect in Connecticut and Iowa in the upcoming months.
