there's the added complication that States are allowed to charge explicit duties on other States' exports or on imports into the charging State, so long as the duty is used exclusively to satisfy the importing State's inspection requirementsThat is true and accepted in the Constitution. But since New Jersey does not inspect stuff imported into the state from New York State, they do not have any inspection costs, so thy should be turning over their entire revenue from the end use tax to the U.S.Treasury. What do you suppose the chances are that Governor Cristie is doing that?Not only would any New Jersey Court I tried to bring such a case to it throw it out, unheard, I could probably not find a lawyer to take the case unless I paid his fees and costs up front. Even then, he might risk getting disbarred for bringing a frivolous case to court. And it is not a state issue anyway, since if it is an issue, it is a Constitutional one anyway.I cannot be the first person to have thought about this, and since end use taxes have not been deemed by the Supreme Court to be unconstitutional, I pay the tax. But I grumble.
