"If you read the entire article on wikipedia you would have noticed congress still has the right to change this which they began working on in 2011. Possibly by the end of this year the road will be clear for collecting sales tax on internet sales."

As I stated before yes it could be brought up in congress but with it being an election year it has little chance. You'd have to tuck this in the middle of some other bill to get it to pass. By itself it probably won't. People that have brought it up have been governors, not that many senators and actual congressman. Sales taxes are on the state level but the federal level of congress has to bring it up in order to change it.

"And then to simplify things I hope the tax is imposed based on the shipping address, otherwise the attorneys will get involved and really screw things up."

But on the same point though what about people that drive to another state and buy goods and go back..this happens constantly. Heck with tobacco it happens quite a bit. NC hardly has any tobacco taxes, meanwhile NYC has the highest. It is more profitable and legal for drug dealers to switch to sell cigs across state lines then it is for illegal drugs.

"Actually, they wouldn't be raising their taxes, they would just be requiring them to pay what they should have been paying all along."

Nice doublespeak. If a merchant doesn't charge it then people might not withhold it themselves for their taxes.

Of course this also brings up what about if labor is attached. Why shouldn't lowes and hd and others charge sales tax if there's an install?
