So why did it put this here in the 2012??? Just one more sign that this is the end of the way we know things. Not that it will be destroyed, or say come too and end, but just they way things are done. No hand held money, taxes on web site sales.
States look to Internet taxes to close budget gaps
take that tax man..oh no what this you say
Internet retailers cite a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court decision involving catalog sales, Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, which ruled that states could require only companies that had a physical presence within the state to act as tax collector.
so if i work at home for one of them does that mean i have to have a state sales tax???
To get around the ruling, some states are expanding what it means to be physically present. For example, an online retailer hiring a marketing firm or owning a subsidiary inside the state would qualify under definitions adopted in some states.
