Very timely post. I just read the following article (http://reut.rs/ZBTsVY). Regardless whether the bill passes or not, the impact on almost ALL meteorite dealers is nil. Here is the key excerpt from the article, "It would also exempt merchants with online annual out-of-state sales of $1 million or less."

I am personally on my way to $1M in sales this year and will gladly pay the extra tax when I reach my goal. I have till December 31 to sell another $995,000.? Wish me luck. ;-)

>Not only do we need to worry about eBay's new flawed international shipping ideas causing an increase in oversees shipment prices, we have to worry about a domestic increase in sales taxes so we have problems on both fronts.
>Yes, our wonderful government (the senate) think that it is time that all online sellers should become tax collectors for their respective states.? Those who host websites may be the first to start collecting around 10% in states sales taxes from every sale.
>We need leadership more than ever in these financially depressed times.? Big government and the Post Office think that raising prices and taxes substantially is the solution during a depression?? Hello, Is there anybody at the helm?? Where is the "Commander With A Few Teeth" when you need some form of leadership?
>Raising taxes and fees during a depression is kicking somebody when they have already been knocked down.
