"brick and mortar" establishments already have to pay sales tax (within their state, the states the operate in), this seems to be going in the direction of forcing mail order and internet sites that are only located in one state to collect sales taxes for the other agreeable states. Based on where the customer is located, both state and city sales taxes. So you will need to know what additional taxes are charged in say San Diego county and what items are subject to the tax.
