Is the Amazon Tax Constitutional?

leave a comment »

That’s a pertinent question for South Carolina legislators, who it seems are considering adding an internet tax — which will essentially be targeted at Amazon purchases.

According to the Tax Foundation, an Amazon Tax would be unconstitutional.

The report states:

If such sales can now expose these businesses to tax compliance and liability risks in states where they merely have customers, they will be less likely to expand their reach into those states.
