No one will say the 'T' word, but Internet sales tax is all but inevitable
It sounds like one of those crazy rumors you get in an e-mail from a friend: "Did you hear? They're going to tax the Internet!" Only this time, it's true.
The days of tax-free shopping are quickly drawing to a close for all except those willing to drive to places like Delaware or Oregon. A two-front assault on Web shoppers is in full force ó Congress is considering legislation that would pave the way for states to force sales tax on point-and-click shoppers, and Amazon.com is making numerous one-off deals with individual states, where it will be collecting taxes no matter what Congress does. Together, these two developments make an Internet sales tax all but inevitable.http://redtape.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/03/13089943-no-one-will-say-the-t-word-but-internet-sales-tax-is-all-but-inevitable?lite
