Comments: Amazon Sues North Carolina to Protect Customer Data

NC DOR pretty clearly wants to go back and make us pay taxes (and penalties) on our past purchases from out of state.

The beast, after all, must be fed. It is hungry and insatiable.

Money. Every law we have comes down to money. It is sick. Gett government out of our lives. Many of us are ready to push them out. Tick tock...

It's all about the money. The state government has destroyed NC business by excessive taxation, and now want to tax state residents on online purchases to refill the plundered state coffers. Of course, we're now in the top ten highest state taxes in the country, and approaching that for unemployment, but rather than cut spending, we'll just tax the people who still have jobs for purchases that aren't supposed to be taxed. Love this place...NOT!

When you use your computer to purchase goods and services, you effectively turn your terminal into a store. Is it not right then for the state to charge taxes on your purchases?

Wow. I thought they were talking about California when I saw that. My bad!
