I do use it as it has little bearing on taxes owed. But in SC, Amazon does report it if I am correct?
What does income tax have to do with sales tax?
I would prefer to buy everything local. Like I said in my previous post. I'm quite thrifty and the ease of online purchases make it even more attractive.
I bought all my Christmas gifts online last year. Its just mush easier. I hate shopping anyway.
The poster above me had said he paid $200 in sales taxes on his state income tax.
That is what one had to do with the other.
I have never gotten a statement from Amazon but then I live in a state with no state income taxes.
Oh and I bet one state over is hurting a wee bit on taxes.
IIRC, when you work in a state that has an income tax that state can withhold the taxes even if you are a resident of another state. Now come tax time, you can file a form to get that money back but the amount usually isn't worth the trouble. So the state profits.
I know our city sure got used to the sales tax it collected while the rig count was up.
