The pushback Amazon received from states on the Internet sales tax issue is gaining momentum with e-tailers of all sizes finding themselves the target of new legal and regulatory initiatives. The latest example is Missouri-based Scholastic Book Club, which the Connecticut Supreme Court found owes $3.2 million in sales tax, plus interest and penalties to the state, reports the Hartford Courant.
The court found that the club has enough of presence in the state for it to collect sales tax on the company’s book sales.
