I'm saying ecommerce is like commerce.
If NC wants information from Amazon because they ship to customers in NC, then NC should also demand:
- information from ANY company that ships to NC (catalog order, etc)
- information from ANY company that sells to a NC resident who then brings that item back to NC
After all, in all 3 cases, the NC resident is liable for NC use tax on the items (assuming the items are taxable). So unless NC demands the same information from EVERY retailer in the U.S., demanding it of just Amazon is discriminatory.
