Pack it up, pack it in.

Zappos just "collected" $12.94 in taxes from me for a pair of new biking shoes. I didn't catch it, i click too fast. I personally liked the old way, where we were responsible for sending in our own taxes for online purchases.

Then i went to get some pedals from Amazon.com and sure enough, the tax man was there waiting too. These shenanigans started in July, and concludes a deal where Amazon doesn't have to pay back taxes, but will start collecting from now on, oh and we get a distribution facility in Texas. I of course filed all my taxes from online purchases in accordance with our tax laws, but i ended up buying the pedals on ebay. :P

At least we are not california crooked, when it comes to amazon.

:P
