eBay is preparing to amplify its attack on a proposed law that would usher in sales taxes on Internet shopping, CNET has learned.
The online auctioneer plans to tell a congressional panel considering the legislation tomorrow that the measure would merely consolidate the market power of Amazon.com and the largest big box retailers while putting eBay's small sellers out of business.
Why do most of the laws they create or seek to create, benefit the huge multi-million dollar corporations?
Because the big companies can afford lobbyists.
Either all the little guys need to band together and do the same, or go the cheaper route and simply fire them by voting out all incumbents at every election until they hear the message loud and clear.
Compliance with each NY City sales tax - where different products are taxed at different rates by Burroughs - is whacked. California with all the special tax districts is similar. The whole setup is messed up. The taxing system was setup for stationary bricks and mortar establishments. If there was a central dataset with a firm set of rules and a clearinghouse for remitting payments, the notion of collecting a tax and remitting it would not look so daunting. As it stands now, NEXUS is also a bloody mess.
Not even our government could be that stupid.
