CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers have passed a bill requiring more online sellers to collect and pay sales taxes.

Senators voted to approve AB380 on a unanimous vote on Monday. The measure passed the Assembly on a 33-9 vote in April.

The bill seeks to require Internet sellers outside the state to collect sales taxes if they complete a certain amount of sales inside Nevada or solicit sales through the Internet.

Supporters say that loopholes in current law put brick-and-mortar stores at a disadvantage compared with their online counterparts, especially as more consumers turn to online shopping.

Current law requires online shoppers who don’t pay a sales tax to sellers to report and pay the taxes directly to the state, but consumers rarely do so.
