Corker: Federal regs on online taxes 3-4 years off

CARTHAGE, Tenn. (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Corker says it may be three or four years before Congress passes regulations on tax collections by online retailers like Amazon.com.

Corker told reporters after a speech to the Smith County Chamber of Commerce in Carthage on Tuesday that he considers it "unfair" for consumers to try out items at local stores only to later purchase them tax free on the Internet.

Gov. Bill Haslam has said he wants to take a lead creating national guidelines on Internet sales taxes, but Corker said he had not yet spoken with his fellow Republican about those aims.

Corker said that the two were scheduled to dine together later Tuesday and would likely discuss it then.

Amazon is building three distribution centers in the state.
