    AMZN huge back taxes liabilities

    They can't close distribution centers in every state to avoid tax! States and special interest groups will ban together and make Amazon pay up.

    • If they did shut distribution centers in multiple states, it would severely interfere with business and earnings. Set-up and shipping costs would be higher and would cut into profits. This is poetic justice. Best Buy lost business because charging sales taxes while AMZN doesn't cuts into Best Buy's earnings. Best Buy won't be coming to AMZN's defense, nor will other business who collect sales taxes.
