Few really object to this proposal, it's how they're implementing it. Do they really expect a small business doing $1m to register and report to 50 different tax agencies? Not to mention, there's something like 20,000 different taxable jurisdictions in the U.S.. Plus, how do you guard against each state being able to potentially audit any company it chooses? If there's a 1% audit rate, that means you're getting audited every other year, guaranteed.
This should really be implemented as a flat internet tax remitted federally and the government can figure out how they divy it out to the states. At the very least, this whole garbage how some states allow sales tax to be assessed at the municipal level has to be canned.
