Law here in PA is simple.  If the vendor has a brick and mortar operation in
the state the consumer pays tax.  I.e., you buy something considered taxable
from COMP-USA or Sears for example over the internet or thru the catalog,
you pay sales tax on the item.  If you go to a border state like Delaware
that has no sales tax but have it delivered, like furniture, you pay the
tax.  This has been the law for decades and the internet has not changed it.
On the other hand if I buy something from Kit or Pat, they are not obligated
to charge me tax because neither Pat or Kit has a presence in PA.  However,
to follow the law, I should then calculate the tax and send it along to the
state.  Same as if I go to Delaware and buy something across the counter.
I'm sure that happens all the time.

Well, we'll see about that. I wouldn't bank on it just yet. The internet
tax, that is. On the second point, that sounds like the mantra of publishers
and printers. To make a million dollars, start with two million.

Internet sales tax is coming. In truth here in U.S,
for every dollar we spend after tax (federal, state,
disability, medical insurance, social security etc etc
etc), we gotta make at least 2.
