CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A bill that would have online companies that sell goods to Wyoming residents to be required to collect Wyoming’s sales tax on the transaction has advanced through the Legislature.

KTWO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/2lSv5G0 ) that the Senate approved the bill Wednesday and it previously passed the state house. The bill now heads back to the house for a concurrence vote.

The tax collection would be expected to generate about $28 million in revenues for state and local government if the bill passes.

Despite support from lawmakers, it’s unclear Wyoming would ever collect the tax based on a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a North Dakota Case that bans the collection of internet sales taxes on companies that don’t have a presence within the state trying to collect the tax.
