Quill Corp. vs. North Dakota
On May 26th, 1992, United States Supreme Court held that a mail order house, may have the minimum contacts necessary in accordance with the due process clause of the constitution with the taxing state relative to imposition of tax, yet lack the substantial nexus, as required by the Commerce Clause, with the state to have such tax imposed. Therefore, mere lack of physical presence in a taxing state does not in and of itself bar the taxing state from asserting a tax against such company. Source

After looking over the article I can't find that they referenced Article 1 sec. 10 in any way. And that's the odd thing. It's like a Mandela effect. It just dropped in there one day and no one noticed.

Amazon has been collecting taxes for at least a year now.
And, as much as I hate to pay taxes, since my state has a sales tax, it is only fair to tax online purchases as well.

The problem I see with sales tax is that it is supposed to be a retail business tax but sellers blatantly charge the tax to the customer, effectively making it a buyers tax. Everyone seems to except this practice without any consideration as to why a "sales" tax is their responsibility as the buyer to pay in addition to the retail product mark-up.
