It's paid by the purchaser for being there. In most (all?) states with sales tax, you are already required to report mail/internet-order purchases on your yearly taxes. If you aren't, you're breaking the law.

no, consumers are not required to file sales taxes they paid. even if they are doing itemized filing of income tax. and i think you are confusing the process of collecting sales tax on services provided by businesses with sales tax paid for by consumers.

and just to be clear. i dont think you understand the issue here with amazon. they do collect sales tax on states where they have local operations like washington state and kentucky. they dont have a local operation in conecticut so they should not have to collect sales tax on items sold to that states residents.
