Amazon sales tax in more states

Amazon purchases will be subject to sales taxes in three more states – Indiana, Nevada, and Tennessee – according to a Yahoo! News report on Wednesday.

Before the addition of these states, Amazon has already collected taxes in 16 states. Looking forward, South Carolina is scheduled to start charging in 2016, as well. When all is said and done via scheduling, there will be 20 such states.

Even without the Amazon tax in other states, a shopper is supposed to list a total of purchases on his tax return – regardless of where one lives. That rule is not always followed, to say the least.

As one can imagine, Amazon as well as other online venues for shoppers have been fighting the taxes. Yet, they are sought after to keep parity with the commonly-referred to “brick-and-mortar” stores that are competitively doing business.

Amazon supports a system which would have nationwide online sales tax rules which has been suggested in the United States Congress.
