I have a very simple understanding of Internet based tax law which is that you only need to pay a sales tax, etc in a state or municipality if the business has a physical presence there.

Generally, taxes are collected to pay for the fire and police department, maintain roads, etc. If the business doesn't have a physical presence requiring support from these taxes then it probably shouldn't be taxed.

How far off base am I in my oversimplified thinking?
