I had a friend in college. She was a cute blond, but sadly only 20 years old, and couldn't get into clubs. Then we realized if we had dinner there first, and just kinda hung out for a while, she could stay. It worked for months, but then one night a bartender carded her and she got bounced.
Yeah, it sucked. She had to wait a few more months before she could go to the club legit. But she wasn't angry about it. She had gotten away with it for a long time, and now she had to play by the same rules as everybody else.
This is a great analogy if paying taxes was just as exciting and entertaining as getting into a club...
[QUOTE=MisterRunon;52756568]uh yeah, let's take more money out of our pockets so a big corporation like amazon can kill off the little guys.. because amazon is so benevolent and all.
Yep completely agree. Amazon has a lot of people completely brainwashed. Now they have that stupid "add on" program which is nothing more than, we don't care if you have prime, we will not ship it free anymore. And those items are definitely not bargains either, which they claim. Amazon sucks if you ask me. Made my money and dumped that stock, the glory days are over.
Ohio makes you write on your tax return how much you spent on untaxed internet purchases so the IRS can charge you sales tax. Who really answers that question honestly? I'm glad I live in Montana now with no sales tax anywhere.
Amazon is the king of eCommerce atm, there is no doubt on that. There are countless people depends on Amazon for business income, and Amazon designed their system that way. So now they are in a position to do whatever they like, and no one can say shit.
Not sure what the issue is. Even though Amazon did not collect the sales tax, purchasers were required to pay the sales tax directly to the state. I'm sure that very few people committed a crime and did not send in the sales tax, but there were probably enough criminals that it made more sense for Amazon to simply collect the tax at the time of purchase. The non-criminals should be happy because now the criminals are not getting a free ride.
I just got done talking to customer service chat a few minutes ago on an order and asked about the tax and Chester V. said if orders are placed before 15th it wont be charged tax, and yes I even asked even if its charged on ship after 15th just to make sure. But stupid me didn't do screen cap thinking they would email the transcript.
