Amazon sellers brood as states come calling for taxes 18.11.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
SEATTLE — Amazon and the tax collector are at it again. For years, the company and state governments scuffled over Amazon’s resistance to charging state sales tax, which helped keep prices low on its e-commerce site and angered politicians and other retailers. Eventually, Amazon began adding the tax in states across the country. But there was a loophole. Amazon added the tax only when the item came from its own inventory, not from the millions of independent merchants who sell products through Amazon’s website. Amazon left it up to those sellers — who account for half of all items sold on the site — to collect sales tax on their own.

What Will Become of California's Progressivism If the Court Sides with Janus? 18.11.2017 American Prospect
(AP Photo/Reed Saxon) A man hands out signs at a rally in support of Prop 30 at Los Angeles City College on October 11, 2012. Capital & Main  is an award-winning publication that reports from California on economic, political and social issues. The American Prospect is co-publishing this piece. Mark Janus, an Illinois child-support worker, will soon argue before the U.S. Supreme Court that his free-speech rights have been violated because he must pay “agency fees” to a union that negotiates contracts on his behalf. Last year, California elementary school teacher Rebecca Friedrichs made the same First Amendment arguments at the high court against the teachers association to which she paid agency fees. The court deadlocked on Friedrichs’s complaint following the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, but his replacement, Justice Neil Gorsuch, is widely expected to cast a decisive vote in favor of Janus and against public-sector unions in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal ...
