In this article the author focuses on studying the treatment of electronic commerce as a new market, which generates consequently a need for adaptation of traditional norms aimed at regulating conventional business operations. In author's opinion, the tax law is the branch which introduces more complexities. Many questions have raised about how to tax the transactions that take place in electronic commerce, with three possible scenarios in which states and tax authorities could join: I) applying the existing taxes, II) create additional taxation of electronic commerce and III) exclude electronic commerce from taxation.
