NH Senators Support Legislation to Protect NH Businesses

CONCORD, NH—Today the New Hampshire Senate passed SB 242, legislation that protects New Hampshire businesses from out of state jurisdictions attempting to impose a sales tax on these companies. The legislation was a result of the US Supreme Court South Dakota v. Wayfair decision. The New Hampshire Senate voted for the legislation 24-0. Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), prime sponsor of the bill, and Senator Dan Feltes (D-Concord) issued the following statements:

“I am pleased the New Hampshire Senate has unanimously sent a message to out of state jurisdictions that New Hampshire is a sales tax free state and we will not subject our businesses to other state’s laws,” said Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro). “I applaud Governor Sununu and Attorney General MacDonald for working with the legislature to craft a bill with real protections for New Hampshire businesses. This bipartisan legislation went through a thorough vetting process and I believe we have come up with a product that will protect the New Hampshire Advantage. I look forward to working with our colleagues in Senate Finance and the House of Representatives to send this legislation to Governor Sununu’s desk for his signature.”

Senator Dan Feltes (D-Concord) added: “Small businesses are the backbone of New Hampshire’s economy—they do not have the time or resources to become tax collectors for other states. I appreciate all of the bipartisan work on this bill. Today’s strong bipartisan vote sends a clear message to small business owners that we’re working together to protect their interests in the Granite State.”
