    It was passed:

    The U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly today to endorse levying Internet sales taxes on American shoppers, despite warnings from a handful of senators that the proposal is antibusiness, harmful to taxpayers, and will be a "bureaucratic nightmare."

    By a vote of 75 to 24, senators adopted an amendment to a Democratic budget resolution that, by allowing states to "collect taxes on remote sales," is intended to eventually usher in the first national Internet sales tax.

    Had to figure they would eventually do this. I live in Illinois and we are required to report ALL purchases made out of state on our state taxes (ie Internet purchases, but the way it's written it could be many other things also)... We ALL do this ALL the time of course
