some of the stuff on that site is correct, but the itunes seems wrong. if the business is in the same state of purchase (ie, barnes & noble is NJ) then you have to pay the taxes. if it is out of state, country, ect, you are not getting taxed.

taxes on comics and magazines, yep, as of this past weekend.

ahhh, libs of NJ, when will you ever learn. let's see what excuse Corzine uses to step down in a few years before he can finish up his four years.

We get taxed on other things out of state, they will find a way... Jersey is the perfect example of a "liberal state" gone wrong, just the worst of the lefts political side... and I say that as a left leaning kind of guy.

Let's face it, politicians are in the business of lying. It doesn't really matter what side they pretend to be on, they are all on they're own damn side.

Agreed, but some places are just worse with one side or the other... I think we had like five mayors arrested last year in Jersey!

this is being handled differently than just the out of state purchase thing.

the notice they sent to my comic store to inform them of the tax changes had a whole thing in it about the taxing of digital media. i don't have the paper in front of me, and can't remember exactly what it said, but the jist of it was that buying and downloading digital media was being taxed. the in-state/out-of-state thing still applies to mail order. so, say, ordering a CD that is being shipped from out of state would still not be a taxable item, but downloading the ablum as MP3s via itunes or some other service would be taxable. regardless of where the company is based.

Whoa. New Jersey is taxing periodicals?

That's a first amendment challenge waiting to happen...

The courts have been pretty consistent on denying states taxing authority on periodicals as something that can abridge the freedom of the press.

Maybe I'm wrong on that, but that's why I always thought periodicals never got sales taxed.
