The more money "the system" gets the more money it NEEDS. When times change and people progress to doing things a new or different way it almost always leads to a tax of some kind. We will never see a time when any part of our government says "no" to collecting money. This will be a nightmare for websites because each place has it's own tax rate
I think online retailers ought to pay taxes... Why should a brick and mortar store, which employs people, has goods for IMMEDIATE use, etc have to compete with an online place at a tax disadvantage to boot.
I think there ought to be a reasonable way for online retailers to pay the taxes... a list of each state and it's tax rate is already available, don't see what's so hard about summing up the sales to each state and writing a check
I’ve got mixed feelings on this one. No taxes definitely gave the online stores an unfair advantage but at the same time there was a shipping charge (don’t believe free anything). States were just loosing too many tax dollars. I don’t think it will change much though. It’s just easier to have stuff delivered to the house. I still buy most stuff at the store and only order things not available in my area.
