I don’t think the existence of fulfillment centers in each state would be sufficient to avoid this tax. It wouldn’t make sense. Every other business in a state that caters to clientele in that state has to pay state taxes. In fact, from the article, state presence could require the payment of state taxes:

“ The Supreme Court ruling said states couldn’t require out-of-state retailers to collect sales taxes from consumers unless those retailers had a physical presence -- through branches, warehouses or employees -- where the consumers were located.”

So states can only require the collection of state taxes if there IS a physical presence

Or am I misreading something?
