Internet sales tax scofflaws cheat California

Californian officials calculate that online shoppers who have failed to pay California’s (100% legal) user tax owe the state more than $1 billion.On this glorious day before Christmas, I have a message for all you sales tax scofflaws out there:Pay up.This means you. You, who bought your big-screen TV online from Amazon.com instead of at Best Buy and your fleece-lined parka from L.L. Bean instead of Eddie Bauer because Amazon and Bean don’t charge you sales tax and the others do.Guess what. You owe it anyway.
