Arizona Bill to charge online sales tax

Posted:

Arizona law makers are working on a bill to try and collect sales tax on purchases made online. But one online company says it's illegal.

A bill unanimously endorsed by a senate committee would classify Amazon as an in-state retailer for tax purposes because it has distribution centers in Arizona.

However, Amazon says it doesn't have to collect sales tax because the parent company doesn't have a physical presence in the Grand Canyon state.

The Arizona retailers association supports the bill.

Lobbyists say thousands of jobs in Arizona stores are at stake.
