Albany Gets Greedy: New Yorkers Will Pay "Amazon Tax"

The goons up in Albany have passed a bill that will allow the state to charge the good ol' sales tax we know and love on purchases made online. Gov. Paterson is expected to sign it into law shortly.

If I'm not mistaken, it is UNCONSTITUTIONAL to levy a tax on a purchase not made in the state that it was bought. To clear that up: I'm in New York. I buy a product online that is distributed from California. If I lived it Cali, I'd have to pay a sales tax, but because I'm not, I don't.

Gov. Paterson, I plea, NO NEW TAXES... especially ones that go against the very article that this country was built on...
