In Phoenix, State Lawmakers are working on legislation requiring Amazon-dot-com to collect sales taxes on Arizona purchases.
The effort is partially an attempt to reap revenue from all those internet sales.
It’s also an attempt to keep Arizonans from bypassing what one report called the second highest sales tax rate in the country.
According to the DC-based Tax Foundation, the average Arizonan pays 9.12% in sales taxes.
Of course, an average means some people pay more, some pay less, depending on where you live.
