Warming Battle Over Online Taxes

dave_aiello What Will This Do to Amazon 3rd Party Sales? (358 comments)

The Amazon Marketplace, ZShops, etc., are a huge moneymaker for Amazon now. They are also a safety net for a lot of people who have lost their jobs.

Do the states that are pushing for sales tax collection really expect all of these small-scale sellers to set aside and remit taxes to the hundreds of separate jurisdictions in the USA? Or, do they expect Amazon to collect the tax based on where the 3rd party seller says they are located?
