I'm just sitting here, minding my own business, reading the newspaper because I've finished my taxes, and I see an article in The New York Times that describes how most people dodge the taxes they are supposed to pay on mail orders.

I didn't even know about such things. I thought tax was taken out when I placed all my Christmas orders with Lillian Vernon, Eddie Bauer, Disney, et al. Is there something else I'm supposed to be doing? Where can I find information about this? I looked through www.1040.com and went to the nearly useless New York State tax site without success.

This is obviously not a major question that must be answered immediately, so anyone with questions who is just trying to get their forms finished and in the mail should certainly take precedence, but I was just wondering.
