Supreme Court Won't Hear Sales Tax Case

WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Supreme Court is refusing to consider throwing out New York State's taxes on Internet purchases on websites like Amazon.com.

 The court is turning away appeals from Amazon and from Overstock.com, in their fights against a state law that forces them to remit sales tax the same way in-state businesses do.

 Web retailers generally have not had to charge sales taxes in states where they lack a store or some other physical presence.
