New York Governor Eliot Spitzer wants Amazon to start paying sales taxes on the sales it makes in New York. Spitzer believes it will level the playing field with those companies that reside in New York that compete against Amazon and already pay sales taxes.
Plus on a side note it would mean much more revenue for Spitzer’s causes, approximately120 million dollars from 2008 through 2010.
I have always felt this was inevitable, paying state taxes from on-line purchases. Is it fair?
