    Not the end of the world. I already pay sales tax on many Internet purchases.

    Years back my accountant insisted I pay retroactive Use Tax which is similar.

    I have bigger issues to bitch about.

    Amen. Since when is a civic responsibility a bad thing?

    Yes, indeed. As a strong leader said, ". . . ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country." After all, it is our home.

    Wise ruling by the Supreme Court.

    States have been losing gigabucks in lost tax revenue to online sellers.

    Things have changed a lot since 1992 when that "physical presence" rule was passed.

    So if we sell a print or gear how does the sales tax get paid?
    Will everyone who uses eBay, CraigsList or this site have to get a State ReSale number for where they live and for where the buyer lives?

    Correct. You need to be registered with the State to collect sales tax or use tax. You will not pay tax on items that are for sale. This is for businesses only. However, if you get payments over $20,000 in PayPal, you are considered a business and have to add a form in you income tax explaining and or paying the taxes.

    Easiest would be for eBay to add the required tax and charge the buyer.
