ATLANTA - The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting Amazon.com will begin collecting sales tax in Georgia on Sept. 1.

The newspaper reported Friday that a company spokesman confirmed the move, which was hailed by the Georgia Retail Association. Association president Rick McAllister told the AJC that it will make a difference to stores with a physical presence in the state that have to charge sales tax and that have lost business to the online retail giant.

Last year, Georgia passed a law designed to collect taxes from Amazon.com and other online retailers. The law is expected to add $16 million annually to the state's tax collections.
