The state of Delaware brags that it was the first state admitted to the union ("It's good to be first"), and its bravado can only increase after an analysis by Extrabux declared it to be the best state to live in for online shoppers.

After analyzing each state's online sales tax rates, along with the varying shipping times and costs, Extrabux came up with a list of the top five best and worst places to live.

Online retailers are fighting to avoid having to pay sales taxes where they aren't physically present or where they have only distribution centers, as Amazon is doing in Tennessee, because they and sites such as Extrabux could lose a lot of money if such tax laws go into effect. Amazon claims its distribution centers aren't retail sites but simply shipping points.
