Recently, Yahoo announced that Texas was considering a bill that would require vendors with online businesses hosted in Texas to collect and remit state sales tax for sales within Texas (whether the business had a physical presence there or not.) This is noteworthy as all of the Yahoo store servers are located in Texas. As cash-strapped as virtually every U.S. state is, if this bill passes then I predict a flood of states piling on. This concerns me a lot. Most ecommerce vendors have enough trouble collecting and submitting sales tax on sales into their own state. Having to do this for another state (or several more, if you use servers in several states) would be rough. If they are like Florida, where each county has it's own tax rate and these taxes have to be calculated individually and remitted collectively, it ain't gonna be pretty. Any thoughts? We have have 8 different ecommerce websites spread across multiple servers and systems here in the USA. However, we're thinking about moving offshore. Being pretty patriotic, I hate to send money/business outside the US, but it seems like our hand is being forced.
