    The Rhode Island Bill
    Getting emails asking so here it is -

    Rhode Island is in the budget, the area of interest is at


    http://www.rilin.state.ri.us/BillTex...as-amended.pdf

    It's in Section 8 around page 19.

    Bill indicates - -"takes effect upon passage".

    Excerpt:

    SECTION 8. Section 44-18-15 of the General Laws in Chapter 44-18 entitled “Sales and
    Use Taxes – Liability and Computation” is hereby amended to read as follows:
    44-18-15. “Retailer” defined. — (a) “Retailer” includes:
    (1) Every person engaged in the business of making sales at retail, including sales at auction of tangible personal property owned by the person or others.
    (2) Every person making sales of tangible personal property through an independent contractor or other representative, if the retailer enters into an agreement with a resident of this state, under which the resident, for a commission or other consideration, directly or indirectly refers potential customers, whether by a link on an Internet website or otherwise, to the retailer, provided the cumulative gross receipts from sales by the retailer to customers in the state who are referred to the retailer by all residents with this type of an agreement with the retailer, is in excess of five thousand dollars ($5,000) during the preceding four (4) quarterly periods ending on the last day of March, June, September and December. Such retailer shall be presumed to be soliciting business through such independent contractor or other representative, which presumption may be rebutted by proof that the resident with whom the retailer has an agreement did not engage in any solicitation in the state on behalf of the retailer that would satisfy the nexus requirement of the United States Constitution during such four (4) quarterly periods.
