Can we all please remember than it is not Amazon that is not paying taxes, it is the consumer that is not paying taxes. Traditional retailers just collect and remit the taxes that the CONSUMER pays. Sales tax is not imposed on the retailer, it is imposed on the consumer. I agree that consumers should have to pay sales tax on all purchases, whether made at brick and mortar retail stores or via the internet, but I feel like the lines were blurred in this story when Mr. Lebovitz says "they also pay sales tax" (referring to the brick and mortar stores). NO, the consumer pays the sales tax!
