Wow. I teach quilting online. My students purchase tools and materials and some of them are purchased through me from Amazon and other retailers.
Maybe you should consider cutting back on the caffiene.
Or find out what you are talking about first.
Nobody is demanding that Amazon ie render sales taxes for Florida sales to California.
Don't want to pay sales tax?
Fine, pay the use tax instead.
Amazon can avoid collecting/paying sales tax from California residents, as long as they have no California based sales “partners”.
Same as in all the other 49 states, for every company, brick and mortar or Internet, large or very, very small.
I think you, along with a whole bunch of FReepers need to realize that supporting and/or participating in black market tax cheating schemes is not a conservative position.
Yes, I am a TEA Party participant.
I can see why there are fewer of us than I initially expected, since so many of my fellow citizens spend more time in tax avoidance, than in working for tax reform.
Maybe you should consider cutting back on the Purple Koolaid.
Just a guess here...you are a Baby Boomber who expects a magic monthly check and/or medical subsidy from the “government” because “you” paid your fair share of taxes all your life, and shouldn't be expected to pay anymore.
Or are you just a capitalist when it is “FREEEEE”
I wouldn’t bother even replying to that person again...
