Internet Tax Games


Every business wants to pay the least taxes possible, even the US Supreme Court’s first opinion about the IRS code encouraged tax payers to figure out how to minimize their taxes. But since the Internet has eliminated the boundaries of time and geography, taxes on the Internet have become more complicated.

Of course at the heart of the tax is where did the taxable event occur?

  • At the purchaser’s Internet connection?
  • Seller’s business location?
  • Seller’s server location?  or,
  • Warehouse/shipping location? 

To learn more on Internet tax creativity I welcome you to read my column in eCommerce Times entitled “Taxing Authorities’ Internet Cat-and-Mouse Game.”

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
