    It's imposed as part of shipment into the state. If a business has a warehouse in the state [and thus is already subject to sales tax] it wouldn't have to pay it. Every other retail receiver would. It is much easier to implement. It doesn't take a federal law & out of state businesses don't have to track it.

    “It takes no compromise to give people their rights...it takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no political deal to give people freedom. It takes no survey to remove repression.” ― Harvey Milk
