Turning Web retailers into tax tattlers

Very few people are aware of this and it comes in force on 15 April.

Internet users accustomed to tax-free online shopping may soon be in for an unpleasant surprise: new laws that will force them to cough up more cash every year on April 15.

An increasing number of politicians, concerned with shrinking budgets and eyeing continuing growth in e-commerce, want to force out-of-state retailers like,, and Blue Nile to tattle to tax collectors about how much in sales taxes their customers have avoided paying.

More government intervention to stave off economic growth.
