Our state has a line on the state tax form asking you to pay the state tax on all of your internet purchases. I wonder how many do that or even keep track of it. I have a problem with this in the fact that a brick & morter store has to pay taxes to city and state so they can pay for infrastructure (streets, sewer, water etc.) plus fire and police protection where an internet store does not. I think as long as a store has no presence in a state and I want to buy something there and bring it to where I live, I should only pay the tax on where I bought it if there was an applicable tax. I too think government spends way too much and I fear we are in for some Draconian times sooner than we think.
