Amazon v NC Taxman: Round Two

less-, the Seattle-based online retailer, recently filed a lawsuit against the North Carolina Department of Revenue, trying to fend off the state’s request for customer names, addresses and purchases.

Amazon claims this request violates its customers’ First Amendment rights and is an invasion of privacy. North Carolina wants the information so that it can collect use tax on purchases made by its citizens. [The Department of Revenue indicated that it never asked for titles, and hopes attorneys for the parties can work things out.]
