I just hope AMAZON can weather this onslaught of STATES to cash in.

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.

Here are the five best states for online shoppers:

1. Delaware
2. Mississippi
3. New Hampshire
4. West Virginia
5. Oregon

Here are the five worst states:

50. Hawaii
49. Alaska
48. California
47. New York
46. Washington
