Re: Amazon to be collecting sales tax in 7 states

VAT in the UK is simple and unavoidable for buyers in the UK, its charged by all internet sellers except small traders who's turnover is below a certain level. It does not matter if you live in Scotland, England, N Ireland or Wales we all pay and the tax all goes to central government. Because its a central government tax its very easy for them to raise the VAT rate when times are tough. Out VAT started about 40 years ago at 8% or 12 1/2% its slowly been raised over the years and is now 20%. When times are good it never seems to come back down. So if the US gets VAT beware it may start at a low rate but governments are expert at spending our money and I'm sure your rate will inch up over the years too.
