Interesting Amazon said to owe Texas $269 million in sales taxes. And instead of paying they closing all facilities and planned faciliities there. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/APNewsBreak-Amazon-closing-TX-apf-1138591325.html?x=0&.v=5 Thing is, they can't close facilities in every state or they would be out of business. also if they actually had to pay the sales tax bill for one state that would eat up most of the $300 million projected income for the coming quarter. If all the states sued for sales tax AMZN would be insolvent. I watch in amazement how the stock has bad earnings and outlook and it goes up 8 straight days. Hail Bernanke.
