Texans shopping on Amazon.com may have to pay sales tax soon. The state of Texas is currently looking into whether Amazon can be held responsible for collecting sales tax, including four years worth of back taxes.
Like I said in the article about New York, "this trend will sweep the nation." Pull your money out of stock invested in these e-tailers. If I pay the same for a product in a store or online, I can go and look at it and feel it, and I can take it back the same day if it breaks, and I don't have to pay for shipping..... I'll buy from local stores every time. This is great for small business.
