Amazon will start collecting taxes for those of us in California starting Saturday, thoughts?
Thoughts? and Does this affect you?
"Amazon will begin collecting sales tax in California on Saturday. Local merchants have been waiting for this day for more than a decade. Now that it has arrived, though, they are tempering their joy at the company’s apparent surrender."
I find it annoying but at the same time, California does need the money. Between prime and no tax, I used Amazon quite a bit for my electronic purchases, with tax... I'm definitely going to look around a lot more.
Final thought... Does this mean that Woot! will now charge tax as well? :O
