I'm buying from Amazon instead of Best Buy because they have the TV I want for $500 instead of $700, and I don't have to be brow-beaten by salesmen trying to sell me an HDMI cord for $30. Not because I don't have to pay 5% sales tax.
So then you wouldn't mind paying it?
It's inevitable that eventually Amazon will start charging everyone sales tax. But Congress will have to make the whole thing a LOT fucking easier (both for Amazon and for the customer) before it will ever become a reality.
Right now the onus is on the customer to report the sales tax... Yeah, good luck with that, fuckers. Like I'm going to keep a log of exactly every single thing I bought during a whole year, so I can then apply sales tax on it and try to figure out where to fucking report it on their by-now completely idiotic tax return forms.
