First Amazon Pulled Out Of Texas, Now It’s Goodbye South Carolina
Amazon does it again, heading for the exits when tax conditions prove unfavorable.
You've got to wonder how many states Amazon can flee after leaving the D/FW area earlier this year. Now after losing a sales tax exemption vote they are packing up a South Carolina distribution center. The state stands to lose 1,249 jobs.
I'm still a big fan of Amazon and an even bigger fan of the Kindle. Whatever they can do to keep prices low I'm all about. I hate to see jobs lost in one state but you can bet they will pop up in another.
