Amazon Sues New York Over Sales Tax Requirement vs. New York

Well, at least this oughta tie things up in court for a couple years.

Amazon has filed a lawsuit in New York contesting a controversial new state law requiring some online retailers to collect sales tax on purchases shipped to New York’s residents, even if they have no offices or employees there.

The e-commerce giant filed its challenge to the law in the State Supreme Court in Manhattan, seeking a declaratory ruling that the law is “invalid, illegal and unconstitutional.” [Reuters/]
