The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled the state may impose its commercial activities tax on out-of-state companies that sell to Ohioans but have no physical presence in the state. Three out-of-state businesses had challenged the tax, claiming it violates the commerce clause of the constitution. The justices decided the commerce clause doesn't prevent the state from collecting the tax, which is levied as a "privilege of doing business."
