I guess I must be a borderline Amazon fanboy too. I always look for an Amazon PM when possible. But then free 2 day shipping/no sales tax charged is tough to beat. I realize we are all legally responsible for the Use Taxes owed for those sales but luckily the government doesn't police it well enough. At least as of yet. I just hope they do some kind of amnesty for past purchases that were owed sales tax whenever they do get it figured out or we are going to owe a ton of taxes.

As much as I love amazon, I am sick of all the love amazon gets on CAG. It is borderline fanboyish...

This love might end soon when states fight back to get the taxes they are owed...

This quote sums it up ""Their entire business model is based on state tax avoidance.""


I think this is a fight the states will lose, that is why they haven't challenged the issue. States don't have the right to tax interstate commerce. Unless Amazon resides in your state, buying from Amazon is interstate. States tax code suggest that they should be able to collect tax but it is on flimsy grounds Constitutionally. A federal sales tax law should be required. It will be interesting to see how it plays out in the court.

The problem is the Use Tax laws in place. They can't charge sales tax but when a product comes into the state the Use Tax is owed (in most if not all states it is the same % as the sales tax). Since Use Taxes are the resposibility of the purchaser to provide to the government they are often not collected either due to ignorance of the law or simply unwillingness to obey.

Seriously, I would guess that <1% of people who purchase "out of state" report those purchases on their taxes, why bother? Its a silly waste of time and the States can't track the purchases anyway. Who cares? The States can Fuck off, they get enough money from other sources, greedy bastards.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I feel like Amazon will match at least a few of the 2 for $50 games at $25 each. Not Fear, but some others. Or at least I can keep telling myself that...

What I don't get is how NY got Amazon to collect sales tax but other states can't.

I'm an Amazon fan but I do feel that it is unfair to other stores that have to charge tax. It's not like the tax is money they keep.

Just today California passed a law to tax online purchases from interstate commerce.

LOL, that article is hilarious. For example:

there is one place they could get $23 billion a year if they could only agree how to do it: Internet retailers such as Amazon.com.
That's enough to pay for the salaries of more than 46,000 teachers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.


So.... teachers make $500,000 a year?!? I'm in the wrong profession.

You aren't really sure how the system works are you? Unconstitutional legislation is passed all the time. It doesn't mean that it will hold up in the long run. If this trend catches on expect a pretty major series of court cases in the future. The results of which will actually definitely answer this question.

You might want to tackle remedial English again before you try to overthrow the President, boss.

I tell you, the most entertaining thing on this forum for me has become the creative raping of the English language, not the funny guesses on Gold Box deals, or the Gamestop hate threads...
