Report Claims Amazon Gave up Fighting Sales Tax to Focus on Same Day Delivery

If it seems strange to you that Amazon expended so much money and energy fighting states to prevent it from having to collect sales tax where it had no physical presence, and then suddenly gave up, you aren't alone. According to a recent report , the reason Amazon suddenly gave up on fighting sales tax collection was so it could put distribution centers inside major cities all around the country.

According to this report the reason Amazon wants those distribution centers scattered all around the country is so it can offer next day delivery as standard and same day delivery for an extra charge. I can only imagine since Amazon has already hurt local businesses so badly with its much lower prices, being able to offer those lower prices and deliver the items the same day could be a crushing blow.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
