I don't know what point Amazon is trying to make. Amazon already collects taxes for 45 US states and 28 EU countries. So why are they drawing the line at collecting taxes for Australia? It's a terrible regressive tax, and it is admirable that Amazon is standing up to Australia and saying, no. But why now? I stopped shopping on Amazon, when I lived in California and and they started charging me sales tax there. Fortunately I now live in Oregon, so I don't have to worry about it. Now I can order anything from anywhere in the world tax free.
