Internet Sales Tax - Get ready to pay!
It looks like the days of tax-free online shopping may be coming to an end...

The Senate on Monday is likely to pass an Internet sales tax bill that would end tax-free online shopping and require online retailers to collect sales tax on products sold in states other than the ones in which they have a presence.

When and if it passes the House, then we worry. But not until then, grasshopper.

The states without sales tax (AK, NH, DE, MT, OR) are still exempt from this, of course... but the rest of us may no longer be able to skimp by with our voluntary/mandatory "use tax" on internet purchases.

Kind of a shame really. If somebody can ship something to me from across the country for cheaper than I can buy in a local store, it sounds to me like the local store is the one with the problem, not the consumers. It shouldn't be the consumers' burden that a local store chooses to have a physical retail location.

so far it only supposed to apply to company which has at least 1 million dollars in revenue in that particular state...perhaps e-bay sellers are safe for now.
