You might find this interesting: I read a year or two ago that Amazon has done a 180 shift here and is now lobbying FOR the collection of sales taxes from out-of-state vendors. Why? Because Amazon has been focusing on rapid delivery, which means more localized distribution centers, which means Amazon must collect sales tax, putting them at a sales-tax disadvantage to other internet retailers.Amazon had appealed a state court decision forcing it to collect sales tax.
