    Oregon and Montana residents shouldn't be taxed then, regardless of where the corporate office is located.
    I'm not sure if it is buyer or seller. If it is seller, I see lots of companies moving.

    I believe it is where the sales transaction takes place. So with internet sales, which location presides?

    Against. We pay enough taxes already.
    If you can't fix it with JB Weld, Duct Tape, and Ty Wire it has to be replaced.
    No good deed goes unpunished.
    If you want to take off friday to go fishing then make sure you train your helper right.

    I think where the buyer lives is what determines the tax. Also the seller has to be doing I believe over a million in sales to be effected by the law. This would certainly include big companies like Amazon. Personally I hate the law. But I understand that it is probably fair. Originally the internet was very small and the tax free advantage helped them grow. Now that they are beyond huge its probably fair that they pay their share. I just wish for once the government wouldn't piss whatever they get away.

    You have to pay the tax to the jurisdiction you ship it to. In tax crazy New York, if you shipped it to us you would have to pay sales taxes to both the state of NY and the City of NY.

    That seems fair. Let the buyer pay the tax they are accustomed to.

    Like my pastor always said, "If God doesn't require more than 10%, then who is the federal government to require more than 10%?" We are way past 10% and this is just going to be more. They say it will generate 22 billion in revune. Our government spends that in 2.5 days.

    I don't understand how it can generate money. The crap we used to buy at stores and pay sales tax on we now buy online and pay no tax on. Don't all they want is the sales tax we used to pay?

    Maybe I'm missing something here. Are they generating that money from people that do not pay sales tax in their state?

    I'd say you'd have to be an idiot to be for it.

    I just ordered a new pair of shoes on Amazon (New Balance), and I think I paid sales tax on Amazon for the first time ever. I know the new law isn't in effect yet. When you're on a budget as tnight as mine, you would hate paying internet sales tax too. The real kicker to me is that the new I-820 interstate expansion that goes around the city of Ft. Worth is going to be a toll road. What are we paying sales tax and income taxes for? The great state of Texas huh?

    Yes...

    At some point, the people of this country will figure out just how easy it is not to pay their taxes. Of coarse, that requires a spine and a hefty sack of testicular fortitude...

    Why should buying a pair of shoes on the internet be any different than buying them at a store down the street. You are already getting price. You want no tax too?

    If sales tax is unfair then stop paying it at the checkstand.
