.."A proposed online sales tax has been offered as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act"

.."Sen. Durbin is focused on working with his colleagues to try to get a vote on the bill before the end of this year, whether as a stand-alone bill or part of a larger piece of legislation,"


Great. Just Great.

Alarmist title.

What it would allow is for STATES to collect their sales taxes on their residents, irrespective of a mail-order house having a presence in said state. As it stands now, residents are already liable, but they have to self-report tax.

Basically, it's a clarification of a Supreme Court ruling from the early 90s.
