Silicon Valley business owners call on Amazon to drop fight against sales-tax law

Aug 22 2011

Clark Kepler saw the beloved independent bookstore that bears his name nearly undone six years ago by Internet retailers who were able to offer lower prices because they do not collect sales tax.

Now that the state has passed a law requiring companies such as Amazon to collect the tax, the proprietor of Kepler's Books in Menlo Park is joining other Silicon Valley small business owners in an effort to ensure the newly leveled playing field stays that way.
