ebaymainstreet.com offers Congress Wants to Tax Sales Across State Lines for News.
Since we all shop online and many of us sell online, this will impact all us dealsplussers:

For many years, large national retailers and many state tax collectors have hoped for new Internet sales tax collection policy. They want Congress to pass a federal law that would allow tax agents from one state to enforce their sales tax laws on retailers based in other states, even when a business is based thousands of miles away. eBay Inc. opposes this misguided idea, and believes that small businesses selling via the Internet should only be subject to the tax laws of the states in which they operate.

The news from Capitol Hill is clear. Internet sales tax supporters are convinced that 2013 is their year, and they are determined to pass a new Internet sales tax bill when Congress tackles "corporate tax reform." In December, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), the sponsor of Internet sales tax legislation, publicly announced that he had a commitment from the Senate Finance Committee to "take it up early next year and move it to the floor."

Your opinion matters. If you oppose giving state tax collectors new powers to impose and enforce out-of-state sales tax burdens on small businesses that sell via the Internet, now is the time to make your voice heard. Click here to send an email to your Members of Congress and express your opposition to state tax collectors imposing unfair tax burdens on small businesses.

You know its coming sooner or later. All they see is potential revenue to waste on pet projects.

The political class in Washington is increasingly like the people who lived in The Capital in Hunger Games.

This would be a NIGHTMARE if passed IMO! I dreaded thinking of trying to keep up with it when I was an eBay sell - but now even considering it as a buyer scares the heck out me!

It would definitely complicate things--and online sellers already pay a substantial percentage in fees (without shipping fees, I pay between 11.5% to 13.5% in eBay and PayPal fees).
