Some pay more for reasons unrelated to income, some less. Some shop around more, some less. Alot of my purchases involve food considering my profession as a trucker, but I still make non-food purchases often enough. Just ordered an old Losi XXX4 off ebay, and a still-unpainted body for it. And asked a local fabrication shop about making a CB antenna mirror mount for my Patriot. And every month or two I'm in the local auto parts store for wipers or oil or something. All this brings up questions like would private sales such as done via ebay, craigslist, garage sales, etc., be charged this tax? Most of my Amazon purchases aren't currently taxed, but I'm guessing they would be in this hypothetical scenario? And what if people start charging less money for things because of this? Unlikely as it may sound, a group or community could exercise their choice to lower prices and do some good for those around them while easing the local tax burden.
