(Jen Chung) Yesterday, the Supreme Court declined to hear Amazon.com's and Overstock.com's attempt to end NY State's practice of charging sales tax on Internet-bought goods. The ruling does not address when the Amazon drones will mis-deliver Justice Scalia's Seinfeld DVDs!
Earlier this year, the New York Court of Appeals ruled, 4-1, that the online retailers had to charge sales tax. Further, as WWD reports, Amazon and Overstock also has "contracts with local affiliates, such as blogs that post links to the Amazon and Overstock Web sites."
