Starting Sept. 1, 2013 online retail giant will start collecting sales taxes in Virginia, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch. “Amazon is very grateful to Governor McDonnell for his focus on Virginia jobs and for his efforts to work with other governors toward national resolution of the sales tax issue this year,” Paul Misener, Amazon’s vice president of global policy, said in a press statement. Estimates say that Virginia could gain up to $24 million in annual tax revenue once the legislation is enacted.
