Sorry about all the trouble. If you notice any other problems with the site please let me know.

I check that often, so I could fix things right away if you send something that way.


Hey guys, according to a lawyer who was one of my Business instructors at the university, the online tax issue is going to be a real sticky one. The only sales tax for sure is in-state, depending upon which state you are from, but there is a lot of goings-on right now from state-to-state, and also a push nationally to just require the tax online - period. I didn't think to ask whether a business would need to charge home state or buyer state taxes...

The problem is, many states and the Fed are losing a lot of sales tax money online that would have normally gone into the coffers. A lot of money that they are thinking of finding other (tax) ways to get if they can't get the online tax money...
