Probably because you are used to living where the taxes are high and everything is taxed. No use tax in TN for example...no income tax either. I now live in the northern Midwest where they tax the letters I am using in this post....where I used to live, they have been experiencing a recovery for yrs, here they are still really struggling as business close or move out of state.I don't see how establishing or enforcing internet sales tax is punitive to the successful. It's closing a loophole. I just did my tax return and paid 7% state use tax and 1.5% local salestax on everything I bought online last year. The internet retailers should be required to collect the tax instead of the states relying on the honor system.
