Four states are testing out systems for charging taxes
online. This article requires an annoying ‘free registration’, so I’ll summarize it: Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan and North Carolina are working with
Esalestax.com to make it easier for states to collect taxes and get around a 1992 Supreme Court ruling that prohibits a state from collecting taxes from a
company that isn’t physically located in the state. A bunch of states have joined the Streamlined Sales
Tax Project in order to make e-taxes a reality. They’re planning on getting things working in December and reviewing the legislation in January.
