Amazon.com will begin collecting sales tax in Georgia on September 1.

A company spokesman confirmed the move Friday.

The Georgia Retail Association hailed the move. Association president Rick McAllister told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution it will make a difference to stores with a physical presence in the state that have to charge sales tax and that have lost business to the online retail giant.

Georgia passed a law last year designed to collect taxes from Amazon.com and other online retailers.

The law is expected to add $16 million annually to Georgia’s tax collections.
