BOLDED FOR IMPORTANCE amazon i hate you
Amazon is working hard to limit the amount of states requiring the collection of sales tax on online purchases. The company recently struck a deal with the state of Texas in which the state agreed to delay the collection of sales tax. [REUTERS]
Anyone feel like Amazon should nip this problem in the bud for good?
Just to be clear, by “nip this problem in the bud for good” you mean bully state governments into giving them an unfair advantage over brick-and-mortar businesses by giving them the power of enabling people’s inherent desire to dodge taxes whenever they can, which would paradoxically mean a loss of revenue for those state governments, when Amazon is already doing things like selling books at prices so low they make no profit, simply for the sake of driving competition out of business, right?
