To essentially impose sales tax on many catalog or internet purchases made from sellers outside the state, by placing in statute a broad definition of “nexus,” or affiliation with a different business that is located in Michigan, in the manner pioneered by internet retailer Amazon.com. Out of state sellers the meet this definition would have to collect Michigan sales tax.
