If the Justices go along with it, you'll be paying more when you make a purchase on eBay, Etsy, Amazon or another platform hosting small retailers. Shoppers won't be the only losers. If the justices side with the states in South Dakota v. Wayfair, mom-and-pop internet businesses and startups will be stymied by the complexity of collecting taxes for 12,000 different state…
