AdolfOliverPanties: This is another example of why we are farked.Politicians do not do what constituents want.They do what big money wants, or they do something that will allow them to take in more of our cash so they can spend it on shiat constituents don't want.
Thoguh: I don't have a problem with this. It'll cut down on really blatant tax evasion, that's it. And smaller companies won't have to "deal with 9,000 tax codes" or anything like that. Some vendor will see a business opportunity to run all that stuff for a small surcharge and all the small businesses will just contract through them.
feckingmorons: You already have to pay tax on the items you buy from out of state vendors that do not collect sales tax if those items would be taxable in your state. Use tax, not sales tax is what it is called. I file my return and pay the tax quarterly as required by my state of residence, Florida.If you live in Deleware, Montana or Oregon you have no state sales or use tax. All others should be paying their use tax as the law requires unless the vendor collects it.This will not raise your tax burden one cent. It will however create an accounting nightmare for the sellers and many smaller sellers will simply close. Those that remain open will have higher tax compliance costs and will pass those costs along to the consumer.If you people had paid your taxes all along like you're supposed to you wouldn't be facing this problem. Quill v. North Dakota was not litigated to save you from paying the tax you rightfully owe, it was litigated so Quill and retailers similarly situated wouldn't be required to comply with tax laws in jurisdictions in which they have no nexus.TLDR version - you already owe these taxes, you don't pay them. Now they want businesses to collect them because you won't pay voluntarily and prices will go up. Pay your taxes deadbeats.

basemetal: I thought you guys liked taxes....
homeschooled: Raise your hand if you answered $0 when your state tax return asked the dollar amount of out of state or online purchases that you owed taxes on.
IronTom: basemetal: I thought you guys liked taxes....That was when the $250k and up were paying them. This here tax affects everybody who buys stuff on the internet.
The Muthaship: Goddamned Republicans.
Popcorn Johnny: Does TF cost $5.30 now?
Funk Brothers: It will never pass the House just calm down everyone. There won't be an internet sales tax imposed in most states in the near future.
Triumph: homeschooled: Raise your hand if you answered $0 when your state tax return asked the dollar amount of out of state or online purchases that you owed taxes on.PA and DE state governments advertise to Marylanders about traveling north for tax-free shopping. If it's evasion, it's government sanctioned.
themindiswatching: Good luck having this pass the House.
AverageAmericanGuy: How did JC Penney and Sears do it before in the age of catalog ordering?
