[Rant] Amazon in New Jersey

Amazon to build warehouses in N.J., collect sales tax.

»articles.philly.com/2012-06-01/b···-holiday

I know can't really rant I guess but come next year Amazon will be in Jersey and my run of cheaper tax free stuff will come to an end.

You'll still save money by not spending time/gas to drive. Their stuff is still cheaper than B&Ms.

Not nearly as much as it used to be. I think they've been within 10% or so on everything I've bought in the last year or two, and not always the cheapest.

It's better this way.

You won't have to calculate these out of state purchases and pay a tax when you file your NJ tax return.

You do this, right? Otherwise, you are cheating NJ and its residents out of legal tax revenue.

Cheat on their taxes? I'm pretty sure that some people do that.

I meant do people actually report what they have bought online and pay taxes on it?

There are probably three or four stupid people who actually do this in the entire country! Everyone else realizes how archaic the entire process is.

On the bright side, their free two day shipping should turn into free one day shipping for Amazon Plus Members.

Probably pay more in gas taxes looking for stuff that doesn't exist in this damn town.

this is the real bullshit.

from the op article:

The deal is contingent on Amazon receiving tax incentives to finance construction of the warehouses in cities that were not named.

Just like people get a tax stamp for their weed.

Re: this is the real bullshit.

The real crime is where the "tax incentives" come from. The company will get back the income tax money for each of the new employees they hire. So, in effect, the employees are giving their own hard-earned money back to their employer! The "tax incentives" are paid by the employees! In any other universe, that would be illegal.
