As Internet purchasing continues to flourish and states adopt their own related tax policies, varying approaches are bound to develop based on the diversity of interests, values and approaches that states take to any given issue , Bloomberg BNA state tax law editor Rebecca Helmes ( @RebeccaHelmes ) writes in this week’s issue of the Weekly State Tax Report.
