  •  For how long? (0+ / 0-)

    If any taxing authority (state, local, neighborhood...) thinks they can squeeze another dime out of the system, how long do you think it will be before the limit is lowered? And what keeps states and localities from passing their own internet tax laws that subvert the federal law? For example, if New York City wants an additional 1% above the local sales tax rate just for out of state internet sales (to help local B&M stores), no matter how small your company, what's to keep such a local authority from doing that? I foresee a mess of thousands of confusing, overlapping or conflicting laws that (for a very large fee that only huge companies can afford) lawyers and accountants would be glad to figure out for you.
