Why Amazon Wants To Pay Sales Tax

How Amazon's ambitious new push for same-day delivery will destroy local retail.

Physical retailers have long argued that once Amazon plays fairly on taxes, the company wouldn't look like such a great deal to most consumers. If prices were equal, you'd always go with the "instant gratification" of shopping in the real world. The trouble with that argument is that shopping offline isn’t really "instant"—it takes time to get in the car, go to the store, find what you want, stand in line, and drive back home.
