Amazon To Collect Sales Taxes Nationwide Starting April 1st

On April 1st? Really Amazon? You couldn't pick a different day than April Fools' Day?

Amazon, the online merchandise juggernaut, will collect sales taxes from all states with a sales tax starting April 1. Tax-free shopping will be over as of next month in Hawaii, Idaho, Maine and New Mexico, the four remaining holdouts. Since the beginning of this year, Amazon has added a number of states to its roster of jurisdictions where it collects sales taxes.
