Amazon.com continues to attract the kind of publicity that most companies seek to avoid. From coast-to-coast, public voices are blasting the online retailer for its refusal to collect sales taxes.
Here are some recent excerpts.
Bloomberg: “There are lots of good reasons to shop online, but dodging sales taxes shouldn’t be one of them. Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) is battling the authorities in its largest state market, California, over this principle. The good arguments are on the Golden State’s side.”
