States Imposing Internet Sales Taxes On Online Retailers

picture-13To deal with increasing budget deficits, many states are turning to online shoppers to close the gap by imposing Internet sales taxes.

“It’s a bit of a mess,” said Eoin Comerford, online retailer Moosejaw‘s marketing and technology senior vice president to Skiing Business. “It’s just a burden on your average outdoor retailer to keep up with all the legislative back and forth. It’s just one more thing you’ve got to worry about.”

Currently, retailers with a physical presence in a state have to charge an in-state customer sales tax. This goes for major retails including Best Buy, Amazon, Target, as well as local shops.
