    Out of state purchasing can't be banned by states, Federal law prevents such a move.

    California takes a less Orwellian approach. On the state income tax form, you are supposed to voluntarily report :D online purchases from businesses in other states and pay California tax on the amount.

    PA has the same thing, and occasionally they go to other states and audit purchases at selected retailers! :eek: I got caught in this trap a few years ago. Apparently, some retailers will hand over the data just by being asked. :mad:

    as someone who manages a few online stores, I see this as becomeing one hell of a headache. I got no problem putting in tax rules for one or two states, but if the rest of them follow suite.... well thats alot of settings to input. And I dont know what kinda hell that would make for the accounting side of things

    New York has also had the voluntary sales tax reporting for a few years. There are two methods to figure non-business items' sales tax on items bought outside NY- item by item exact calculation, or using a chart based on federal adjusted gross income....mine seems to work out better based on income so I use that.

    I hear you don't have to pay any of those taxes when you're in prison, which is where you'll be if you don't pay your income tax. ;)
