Consumer's Use Tax: Did you purchase merchandise by Internet, telephone, or mail, or did you purchase any merchandise outside Virginia and pay no sales tax? If so, you may be required to pay Consumer's Use Tax. Be sure to report the applicable tax on Schedule ADJ.

I almost hope he's convicted on the latter charge; the publicity that will generate may lead to sane revision of these laws.
