I am sure many of you already are aware of this, but if you are not: starting March 1st Amazon will start adding sales tax to all merchandise shipped to AR. If you want something you may want to think about purchasing before the end of the month. I know I am going to order a few things today.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. I guess Amazon grew tired of fighting it.

I think this may not be happening since the sales tax law didn't pass.

and I have no problem with it. I feel sorry for our merchants who lose money to on line shopping. Am I happy about things costing more? Nope, but I believe it is the right thing for our cities and state.

according to the paper yesterday, it still looks like Amazon will be charging us sales tax starting Mar 1st. Regardless, sooner of later we are going to pay tax when ordering on line. WE might as well accept this.

This will certainly level the playing field between Amazon and Walmart and put more money in the government's pocket. I don't see it helping small businesses much though. They will still be facing the same hurdles they've always faced.

I see it helping everyone including small business. Certainly not as much, as say. WalMart. But it will help. Even bringing more tax dollars into our state is a help.
