I wonder if, once Amazon gets the bill passed, if they’ll provide a database to the states so the states can see which citizens received out-of-state goods without paying the required sales tax?
That would be even more money for the coffers.
My neighbor told me this morning that the state that I live in, mainly because you can’t move a family farm, (Pennsylvania) sent him a letter last month informing him that he was responsible for paying the state taxes on all the tobacco products that he had bought from an Indian reservation. (This was in the thousands of dollars) They knew every carton he had ordered. The seller had a notice posted that buyers information was never revealed. But the state knew down to the last cigarette. If they can do that with tobacco, they can do it with anything. Greedy bastards!! Last summer I bought a new tractor from the Kubota dealer across the state line, I’m expecting a call from the state dept. of revenue. It hardly seems fair. I buy lots across the state lines, because where I live I don’t get any of those great state “services” that my PA taxes pay for, why they hell should they only think of me when they want money?
