  •  I'm not sure how it works for used items (0+ / 0-)

    but for the first part of your post you would have to calculate the tax for each buyer based upon their state residency and collect the tax.

    •  Um, State, County, Municipality, School district.. (0+ / 0-)

      Transit authority, Amumement district, etc..

      Not JUST state, and by Address..

      •  It's whatever tax... (0+ / 0-)

        you pay in a brick and mortar store in the locality.  I live in New York City and the sales tax is 8.65% so that's what an internet retailer would charge me.

        •  Not "locality", Specific Shipping Address. (0+ / 0-)

          Oddly enough, UPS doesn't ship to a town, it ships to an address..

          And addresses around the country have 9600+ Sales Tax jusistictions, and can be a part of any combination of those

          State
          County
          City
          Water District
          School District
          transit District
          And the List goes On, And On, And On

          About how many households/addresses are there in America? How many separate sales taxes are you apart of?

          And, Does it include resale exemptions standard in many states, and that would mean every company has to fill out 46 resale certificates, and separate out wholesale and retail.. adding ANOTHER layer on Top of the 9600 layers added to every online seller (Wait until they drop that 1M, "Fairness, Ye know.. ")

          Terrible..

        •  8.875 according to NYC Finance.. So that's wrong.. (0+ / 0-)

          Enjoy your audit..

          Oh, Unless you're buiyng clothes of 101 or more, then it's only 8.5

          Or, Parking, But I'll go ahead and assume that's physical location, but FYI that's 10.375 in NYC, and 8% more in Manhattan..

            You're talking about an audit.

            •  You do know that if you file these wrong, and use (1+ / 0-)

              Any of these 9600+ Juristictions may audit you.

              Costing the small businessman even MORE money, MORE time, MORE aggravation.  More lost revenue for you that you spend, and help the economy..

              9600 audits,

              Can't even fathom that..  Yet, that IS this bill
