here is some of the article

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some major retailers this week began voluntarily charging online sales taxes in 37 states and the District of Columbia, a move that could reshape the way business is done on the Web.

Participating brick-and-mortar retailers, such as Wal-Mart, Toys "R" Us and Target, hope their first steps will help bolster the states' effort to mandate online sales taxes, leveling the playing field between themselves and Internet-only rivals.

Under current laws, catalog companies and pure online retailers only have to charge sales taxes in states where they have operations, such as a warehouse or distribution facility. Nationwide brick-and-mortar retailers say this puts them at a disadvantage in states where catalog and Internet-only companies do not have operations.

"We can't have a system that discriminates some vendors in favor of others," said Frank Shafroth, director of state-federal relations for the National Governors Association. "Why should there be a double standard?"

The major retailers said the move also helps them integrate their online and brick-and-mortar operations


In the past, many retailers had set up subsidiaries so they could avoid charging online sales taxes in states in which they operate stores. But as they started blending their online business with their stores to create better synergies, they created more tax liability.

"In order to allow consumers to return merchandise bought online to our stores, we need to charge sales tax," said Susan McLaughlin, a company spokeswoman at Toys "R" Us.

Target Corp. spokeswoman Kathy Wright said Target.com has been charging sales tax in the 47 states that it operates stores, but this week started collecting tax on online sales at Target's Web store on Amazon.com and on its Marshall Field's division's online site.

While Shafroth said the latest development "won't be a big plug" to states' financial shortfalls, if the agreement became national, it would have a dramatic effect.

He estimates that next year, there will be $35 billion of state and local revenues from uncollected taxes on e-commerce. That will jump to $50 billion in 2008, he said.



Behind the scenes a mass of lawyers and political hangers on mostly queers and left wing pond scum Jews and the usual float to the top of the melting pot scum.

this is gonna go thru if we do not alert enough people,


the basterds have to find a way to pay for the Mexicanization of America they dont have the money left from social security because they have stolen what they could and given the rest to the zionist occupation government.

This is absurd. One of the main reason people even shop online is because they can get a decent deal on things. If they put tax on, it would lower revenue. Why would these store want to push tax? They would make no money off of it.
