Sales tax on internet sales one step closer

but still a long, long way to becoming law

Looks like the States are moving to become "uniform enough"
to get sales taxes added on to internet sales.

Lots of work remains before it becomes law. Interesting
the agreement the States made mentions 2006.

It appears some form of sales tax on internet sales is
likely...someday.

FYI,

That's interesting (depressing but interesting) ... but how would it work for, let's say someone based in the Caribbean in a country which has no sales tax but who's customers are mainly American and whose web host is based in the US?

Or states like Oregon and Alaska where there is no state sales tax?

Merchants would be required to collect and disburse tax specific to purchaser's state. I presume there would be some sort of discount to help merchants defray cost of collection and disbursment.
