Weaver95: try and tax the internet. I dare you. Go on. Do it. DOUBLE dog dare you!the party that successfully manages to tax online transactions will face a very very nasty voter backlash indeed.
xanadian: Some websites tack on a tax when they check your zipcode.Also, Maine has a 'use tax' of ...I forget how much... specifically meant to cover what you MIGHT have owed if you bought stuff over the Internet.

The_Sponge: Considering that my state government is about to raise the liquor tax, they can go fark themselves./There was a time when the cigar tax was 129%, I shiat you not.
rumpelstiltskin: It's only cheating if you get caught.
Bohemian: The state would waste more money attempting to collect than they would ever bring in.
Truth1746: I operate an online store. (Both ebay and website.) I am NOT responsible for collecting taxes from buyers outside of Ohio. The buyer is supposed to report it. I don't like it one bit, but I also like having my business, and this state would shut me down. Quickly.When the buyer checks out, if they reside in, or are having the item shipped to Ohio, the website (and ebay) automatically adds the tax of 6.5%. /I hate Ohio.
mightybaldking: I'd put internet under the umbrella of interstate commerce.Put on a federal sales tax, Kill the state taxes on internet sales, and let the states and Feds fight over how to distribute it.Perhaps payable to the state where the product is delivered. (obviously this needs some tweaking.)Feds keep 1% of revenues to administer the program, States get the rest.
rmz: I pay less in tax, but I pay a lot more in inflated shipping charges.Obviously, the solution is to tax FedEx and UPS. Yeah, that's the ticket!
little big man: I'm going to move a little further south, work in Wyoming so I don't pay state income tax and then do my shopping in Montana to avoid sales tax.
the8re: NH survives on MA libtards who vote for tax increases then come to NH to shop. ONLY Massholes could make "hypocracy" a new form of government.
Were_Outta_Bort_License_Plates: I guess I'm the only citizen of GA who pays his internet sales and use tax. I think the minimum is $5, but I just sent them a check for the 1st quarter of 2009 for $1.10. I bet they just sit around the GDOR regional office in Rome and giggle, or don't know what to do with the check half the time./I don't eBay or buy Japanese toys much anymore these days
