    I'm still reading through all this, but this clause caught my eye while I was looking to see if the NY legislature's text is included (haven't found it yet):

    STUDY OF NORTH CAROLINA'S SALES AND INCOME TAX STRUCTURE

    SECTION 27A.7. The President Pro Tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives authorize the Finance Committees of the Senate and the House and other designated members to meet during the interim to study and recommend legislation to reform North Carolina's sales and income tax structure in order to broaden the tax base and lower the State's tax rates.

    (6)
    Any combination in whole or in part of any two or more of the foregoing
    statements of fact, if it is intended that the tangible personal propertypurchased be brought to this State for storage, use use, or consumption in
    this State.
    (b) Mail Order Remote Sales. A retailer who makes a mail order remote sale is
    engaged in business in this State and is subject to the tax levied under this Article if at least one
    of the following conditions is met:
    (1)
    The retailer is a corporation engaged in business under the laws of this State
    or a person domiciled in, a resident of, or a citizen of, this State.
    (2)

    media, telephone solicitation, magazine or newspaper advertisements, orother media, creates nexus with this State. A nonresident retailer who
    purchases advertising to be delivered by television, by radio, in print, on the
    Internet, or by any other medium is not considered to be engaged in businessin this State based solely on the purchase of the advertising.
    (6)
    Through compact or reciprocity with another jurisdiction of the United
    States, that jurisdiction uses its taxing power and its jurisdiction over the
    retailer in support of this State's taxing power.

    105 164.8(b)(3)

    So here we go - current statute:
    (3) The retailer has representatives in this State who solicit business or transact business on behalf of the retailer, whether the mail order sales thus subject to taxation by this State result from or are related in any other way to such solicitation or transaction of business.
    And the N.Y., uh, I mean the N.C. legislation:
    (3) The retailer solicits or transacts business in this State by employees, independent contractors, agents, or other representatives, whether the remote sales thus subject to taxation by this State result from or are related in any other way to the solicitation or transaction of business. A retailer is presumed to be soliciting or transacting business by an independent contractor, agent, 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 Web site or otherwise, to the retailer. This presumption applies only if the cumulative gross receipts from sales by the retailer to purchasers in this State who are referred to the retailer by all residents with this type of agreement with the retailer is inexcess of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) during the preceding four quarterly periods. This 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 seller that would satisfy the nexus requirement of the United States Constitution during the four quarterly periods in question.
    WAY TO GO, SHEEP! Now, diagram those sentences for us.

    This seems broad enough to include every company that advertises in any print publication, billboard, radio, or television in North Carolina too. I wonder if newspaper, magazine, and broadcast publishers were aware of this if they would join the fight too? I also think this can include overlap of Pay-per-click online--it certainly hasn't ruled that out.

    Does anyone read this and think that they can't apply it to [B]any form of advertising[B] when they so choose?

    I seriously doubt a single legislator could clearly explain what this means. After all, they didn't write it. Someone in New York did. The wording is intentionally nebulous so it can be manipulated however they want it to be perceived.

    Does anyone know if NC measures their quarters like NY does, or do they go off the calendar and have Jan-Mar, Ap-June, July-Sep, Oct-Dec?

    Or neither?

    Thanks

    NC goes by the calendar (Jan-Mar, Apr to Jun....)
    http://www.dornc.com/taxes/sales/frequency.html

    Since I am not a lawyer or accountant you should of course verify with your accountant and/or S & U attorney. )

    NY's quarters are less commonly used.
