The U.S. Senate recently passed a bill that would allow states to collect sales tax on online purchases, potentially leveling the playing field between brick-and-mortar and online retailers.

Fool editor Lauren Kuczala sat down with contributor Travis Hoium to see who the winners would be and why Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) may benefit despite having to pay more in taxes on its purchases.
