Nebraska is giving online businesses until 2019 to start collecting sales taxes on orders placed within the state.

The Department of Revenue announced Friday that so-called remote sellers must obtain a sales tax permit and begin collecting the tax by next January 1st.

The decision follows a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that gave states the authority to force out-of-state online retailers to collect sales taxes on their behalf.

Nebraska loses out on an estimated $30 million to $40 million a year in state tax revenue from online purchases.
