Yea, good luck with that. Even if it passes it will be almost impossible to enforce. States would have to sue everyone.

The reason I buy on the internet is to save money on taxes. If they put on taxes + shipping, it won't be worth it.

Exactly. And it'll stiffle growth as all taxes and government involvement do. Fuckers.

these are actually state sales taxes, the federal government will not see any of the money, just insure the states get it. looks like texas has not yet jumped on this, hopefully they will not, but it might be a good idea to let your state representative know before they do

I know Texas has already gone after Amazon, but it's a little different since Amazon actually operates a facility in Irving. I know it seems since this happened I haven't gotten anything from Irving, it's all coming from out of state. I used to get the free super saving shipping in like 2 days, no more though.

Amazon.com may owe Texas millions in uncollected sales taxes

By MARIA HALKIAS / The Dallas Morning News
[email protected]

Texans who shop Amazon.com to avoid paying sales taxes may not have that luxury for long.

The Texas Comptroller's Office is investigating whether the Internet retail behemoth, with sales last year of $14.8 billion, owes Texas possibly millions of dollars in uncollected sales taxes on purchases made by its customers in the state.

Seattle-based Amazon.com has been operating a distribution center in Irving since 2006, giving it a "physical presence" in Texas, a longstanding litmus test for when sales taxes must be collected by an online or mail-order company.

The issue came to light last month after Amazon.com Inc. sued the state of New York over whether it should begin charging customers state sales taxes, citing the federal law it appears to be breaking in Texas.
