Well they could not do that over here in Europe. Someone should be challenging that in the courts. Surely the retailer is charging tax at their local rate?, which would mean anything else is double taxation or the retailers state is missing out!

No, it's not double taxation. You pay tax on the state you live in, the retailer only charges tax for one state (usually around 8%). Which is far less than the 20%+ VAT in most European countries. I live in California and we need the money for our crumbling roads and decaying education (once the best in the world).
