This is where it kinda started:
This is really going to be interesting considering some items are 'tax-free' depending on the state.
Currently there is no state sales tax on clothing in Minnesota. But there IS a sales tax on other items commonly sold over the Internet.
This means that not only will the taxes vary by state, but by 'use'. It will really get confusing after that...
Is a Halloween costume 'clothing'? If so, can your accessories FOR that costume be considered clothing? If so, can I claim I'm exempt from paying sales tax on my new digital camera because I'm dressing up as a paparazzi?
Will bed sheets be exempt if one attends a toga party?
Now imagine the angry phone calls the online retailer will be getting:
"You charged me tax on my socks! Socks and clothing are tax-free in Minnesota! I want a refund NOW!"
