    As stated in original diary, sales taxes are regressive, plus they are a very inefficient way to collect taxes. And taxing the ones who spend rather than the ones who make the profit discourages consumption. Taxing the profits would level the playing field, because it wouldn't matter how the sales were made (overseas mail order, internet, phone, B&M etc), and it would be simpler to implement because it's already built into our tax code now -- just charge another 5% or so and send that money back to the states.
