Online Sales Tax

The US Supreme Courts seems to say that in some cases, states may require stores with no presence in the state to capture and remit sales taxes.

For Iowa, the law takes place 1 Jan 2019.  There are several ways to avoid the tax for small or infrequent sellers.  

 

What will this mean?  Does this mean that if I buy from Amazon, Amazon has to know if my tow has a local sales tax?  Once I was unfairly charged such a tax and it was a hassle to get the tax refunded.

 

I don't have a problem with paying a fair sales tax - I am a little skeptical that the software will get it right.
