Colorado's Internet tax law challenged
DENVER — An opponent of Colorado’s Internet tax is appealing a court ruling that would allow the state to enforce the law, asking for another chance to convince the court that the measure’s new reporting obligations are unconstitutional.
The Direct Marketing Association asked for a rehearing of the case by the full 10th Circuit Court of Appeals after a three-judge panel ruled last month that the new law is constitutional and ordered that an injunction be lifted. However, the injunction will remain in effect until there is a final ruling on the case.
“The permanent injunction that the federal district court imposed on the state of Colorado so that they could not enforce the law remains in effect until after the 10th Circuit decides whether to hear the case or not,” said Jerry Cerasale, senior vice president of government affairs for the DMA.
