I strongly dislike sales taxes. They’re a huge pain in my butt, personally, as a business owner. I’d like to seem them all disappear. (But just ftr, I don’t face competition from internet sales so I have no figurative dog in this fight.) If we can’t do that, I see no reason that some businesses should be treated differently than others. Why should internet retailers be able to sidestep the tax laws that the rest of us are subject to? Further, interstate commerce happens to be an area that the federal government was given clear jurisdiction as per the constitution. I seriously do not get the opposition to internet sales tax. These companies have been given a free ride up to this point, and that will come to an end. There are a great number of valid tax fights that these guys can take up… this one doesn’t make any sense.
