Amazon Fire Draws Ire Of Sales Tax Site

The Amazon Kindle Fire tablet media event in New York Wednesday week also attracted the attention of, the year-old site that is trying to get Amazon and other e-tailers to collect local sales taxes.

The website gave out fliers to the assembled media with the headline, “Hey, Amazon: Stop Bullying Small Businesses and Our Communities. Start Collecting Sales Taxes.”

No matter what side you are in this fight, it is more than ironic that among the site’s backers are national retailers – Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Home Depot and Sears. Go figure.
