My state has no sales tax. So what I take from this is that when I buy something from amazon, if the seller is in a state that does I will be charged with sales tax and that is stupid.
Would the tax to go my state or theirs? If theirs why should I have to pay a tax for a state I don't live in?
no no no that is not how this works, if you have no sales tax in your state you pay nothing, the seller has to charge you your local sales tax then turn that over to the state you live in
No, because it will hurt online businesses.
and no taxes online hasn't hurt non-online businesses? it's a two way street... and the excuse "Brick and mortar stores cost more therefore it should hurt them" doesn't fly either
heck trust me, I thought no sales tax online was awesome for years, the more I see it hurt local towns, the more I am against it... especially when I see people ordering shampoo online because it "has no tax" yet they could of gotten the same stuff locally right now with no wait for a few cents more.... literally sometimes just a few cents more due to the tax
