I understand why it can be good and all, but how would it work? Would you pay taxes for the state you are in or the state the company is in? If it's by company then the companies in a state with the lowest taxes thrives and the others not so much. If it's by which state you order from then who will be able to police it. I think that's the reason there was no online tax to begin with. What i think j427x was mentioning was the corparate tax... I think... But WalMart breaks the mold because they are such good capitalists it seems greusom, but that's why they are so good at what they do.
But back to my original concern... Would it be a flat online tax? That would make the most sense, but what if the flat tax is still better than the local state tax. That business wouldn't stay in the local economy anyways.
Would they just tax you to use the internet? It seems like it has been drawing business away from libraries for years. Who knows I am just curious.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
