And apart from anything else, it's only doing at a national level what the US already does in it's complaints about Sales Tax in cross-State transactions through the likes of Amazon. Sale Tax is paid at the point oif sale to the local jurisdiction. Simples :-)

It's also setting in place the systems required not just to tax the big US tech companies, but also those big tech companies we in the west don't think of quite so often, but are beginning to make inroads to the west from the far east, eg TenCent, AliBabba etc.
