    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.

    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?
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

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

    Tax documents are already mailed to eBay and PayPal users who exceed a certain amount of sales/transactions.

    You see plenty of larger users charging tax within their state already. Will not be hard to implement a global tax addition to eBay sales (on the buyers end).

    Small-timers will continue be no different than local yard sale vendors. Your tax burden is your problem to figure out (and is mostly ignored).

    Don't forget that increase in complexity = increase in compliance costs = less taxes used for actual public good.

    Fortunately, this probably won't affect small sellers... yet.

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