Political reporter Katie Bradford, and avid online shopper herself, says it's an easy tax for the government to generate some revenue. 

"National was looking at doing it as well. I guess it's the details of how they actually do it, and if it's going to work and make a difference that's interesting," Bradford said.

The government's offical line is the Amazon-tax will level the playing field for local retailers.
