Retailers Call for Amazon TaxMarch 17, 2011
Several top retailers, including Best Buy, Walmart and Target, are engaging in a nationwide campaign to require Amazon.com and other online retailers to pay sales taxes.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the group is called the Alliance for Main Street Fairness.
The campaign is targeting states with budget deficits which are seeking new revenue. Small businesses are involved with the effort as well.
Amazon recently cut loose its Illinois affiliates after that state passed an Internet sales tax.
