Great, just what we don't need. I guess the government will have more money to waste now.

I do not believe it is a good idea. Maybe for sales in state but not to other states.

The more I think about it, the more sense it makes to me.
Yes, more taxes are always nice.

Really? Right now if I order from Amazon there is no tax. If this law passes, there will be a tax. Thats an increase.

Some will split their operation into several smaller companies to get under this amount.

Great idea, punish people who might just hire someone.

When was the last time Congress has done something we approve of?

Tax increases of all kinds, inflation inducing runaway spending, mandatory health insurance, gun bans and for the cherry on top of this steaming pile, amnesty for the illegal immigrants.

Our taxes are being raised and some of you are happy about it and think it's the right thing?

Sure online retailers have an advantage because shoppers may not be charged a sales tax, but brick and mortar stores have advantages too. No shipping charges, no waiting for delivery, and I have the ability to inspect the product before purchasing.

By forcing online retailers to charge sales tax (which I should be noting in my tax return anyway) they are in fact playing favorites.

Y'all are excusing repubics for voting for this. GOP honeys Jeff Sessions and Richard Shelby voted for more taxes too.

Politicians are one in the same. It's about control and power.

Really? Here we have to report any internet purchases that were not taxed at the end of the year on our income tax, so we are taxed on it regardless. What state do you live in that doesn't require this?

Uh? You all are okay with the internet sale tax? W O W, America is destined to be doomed! Haven't you learned the history? Colonials were pissed off at Englad for taxing them on every piece of papers. This is no different.

With Amazon being in my state, I pay sales tax immediately anyway on most of my purchases.

If anything, I think the state that the business is in should get the sales tax since they are the ones supporting the business with roads, fire service, police etc.

Your local retailers are special interests running an obsolete business model.

Of course, the playing field must be leveled by increasing taxes. Decreasing taxes is not an option. We can't possibly reduce any federal spending. 47 million people on food stamps need their free stuff!

The law is unconstitutional, unless the retailer has a physical presence in the state he is shipping to. Article I Section 9 of the constitution states,"No tax or duty shall be laid on articles exported from any state."

Feinstein and Schumer voted for it of course.

One of the few posts in this entire thread that makes any sense. Down right scary, huh?

Pretty much. So the price of the product goes up, we will pay for shipping, AND pay a high liberal-land tax depending on where the online seller is located. Then we sit around on our hands for 3-4 days, sometimes over a week or two, for our item to show up at our door.

Why would anybody choose to shop online anymore, except in extreme circumstances where they can't find the item locally?

So because you currently evade the tax means it doesn't exist?

And you're apparently okay with that considering you're arguing for more of the same.

What is the justification for sales tax in general? I understand it is a means of revenue for the state government. But is there an actual moral or ethical justification for it? If so, what is it?
