OK… I Can’t figure this one out…

Oklahoma is already a Full Member State of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, but rumor has it that legislators there are understandably frustrated by the lack of federal action to date to fully authorize interstate sales tax collection, so they too are considering introduction of an Amazon Tax.

This is where things get a little funny… The Oklahoma House is now considering HB 2716 which calls on the Oklahoma Attorney General:

“to establish the Unconstitutional Interstate Taxation Prevention Unit to prevent any state or local government entity other than the State of Oklahoma or its political subdivisions from enforcing or attempting to enforce or apply any income, sales, use, excise, gross receipts, franchise or other state or local tax in a manner inconsistent with the Due Process Clause or the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.”

Apparently one hand does not know what the other hand is doing… 🙂
