    Quoted from Luckydogg420:

    That’s one way to look at it. I differ in my point of view, not all taxes are useless.
    I could think of a hundred things that America could improve in your country with more tax money. Alas, instead of using it for good social programs or schools, or roads ect... it will probably be used for something stupid like military spending or border control, or just used to line the fat pockets of the rich in your failed system. Yes, I believe that any country as rich as the USA, with poverty as high as the USA is a failed system.

    For all of the small business owners here complaining about this burden, it is nothing new. In the late '80's to mid'90's I worked for a small division within Rockwell International that sold electronic data recorders and related stuff directly to trucking companies throughout North America.

    Small as we sold between $800k-2M/month so not significant. We had our own people who did accounting / billing before giving what was left to Corporate to help with the B1 bomber, Space Shuttle and Rocky Flats fiascos.

    Anyhow, we collected sales tax from each company we shipped them to based on location. J.B. Hunt, for example, has terminals all over the place so when we shipped to their Springfield, Ohio terminal, we collected 5% (remember, this was many years ago) and 4% to the Romulus, Michigan terminal. But, when we shipped to the Lowell, Arkansas headquarters, we collected 4% or whatever the rate was. We paid the sales taxes to each state quarterly after we collected it from the customers. So, this was done 30 years ago. The Rockwell Lawyers made sure we did what was legal. Even though it would be difficult to verify, but would certainly come out in a tax audit.

    Of course, we had people to do the legwork.

    Quoted from iceman44:

    Stern has potential liability here as well
    Drop shipping a game straight from Chicago to your doorstep.
    Enforcement is gonna be extremely tough for these states
    But if you can go straight to the original Seller on drop ships AND sales tax wasn’t collected by the Distro it could leave Stern with potential exposure
    I deal with Doctor groups and navigating the “Stark” anti referral rules. VERY creative and the state AG office is always two steps behind because they don’t have the manpower to enforce and/or change the rules timely enough to make a difference
    Stern needs to help figure this out and not just think they are going to pass this cost on

    Too bad SKitB folded. Otherwise we could CONsult with mama K of their Legal department and get the real scoop......
