    It will be interesting how well they police this. For the big guys like Amazon, etc, it should be fairly easy but the small retailers will be next to impossible to track.

        Amazon has cut off its CA affiliates. The Court says that a retailer only has to collect taxes under certain circumstances, including having a physical presence in the State. Four other States have enacted the "Amazon tax" and Amazon has dropped its affiliates in 3 of them. The 4th is NY and Amazon has a lawsuit pending against NY over the issue.

        So Amazon will not be collecting sales tax, at least not at this point.

        Seems typical of Government to address their fiscal problems by more taxing instead of fixing the fundamental problems of waste, mismanagement and loss of industry that is causing their problems in the first place. CA has been losing businesses for many years because CA is an unrealistically expensive place to operate across the board. Having milked the life out of the in-State businesses, they're now going after online retailers. It's sad to see CA businesses suffer by losing thier relationship with Amazon, but I applaud Amazon for resisting.
