Online Taxes Looming Large

in General Discussion edited January 2014

And it looks like Amazon is one of the big players making a push for it. What I couldn't glean from the story above was, does this only apply to those people who make a purchase from a state where the online retailer has facilities?

It's already that way, isn't it? If I have to start paying taxes for every book I buy from Amazon, I may as well not do so in most cases because the price will come back fairly close to the B&N price. Might as well just pay the extra 5% or whatever right there at the store... can have the book the same day, pick one that isn't damaged, etc.

This pisses me off. Will suck even worse if we have to pay taxes to the likes of, even if we don't live in (Vermont?). Poop.

    I'll just open a Mailbox in Oregon and then have them reship up to my place. NO MORE TAXES!

    I'm about to go militia on our Gov. Leave my Money alone.

    Of course Amazon is down for expanding the scope past $5 million, they have nothing to lose b/c of their size. They don't want to lose business to small online retailers.

    One thing we certainly don't want to do is encourage small business.

    Amazon just lost a customer.
