Holub noted that New Jersey is one of about 25 states participating in a federal streamlined-sales task group that is charged with coming up with uniform rules for the imposition of online sales taxes across state lines, but acknowledged the complexity of the issues involved.
“It’s not just a question of what you tax, but how you define it,” Holub explained. “Take, for example, the Twix bar. Is it a candy or a cookie? Twix is a chocolate bar, but it has flour. If it is candy, it is taxable. If it is a cookie, it isn’t. States need to come to agreement on what the Twix bar is. These are the types of complicated questions that need to be resolved.”

Yeah, trying to always invent new ways to tax us leads to some pretty silly discussions.
