I'm trying to determine how each of the 50 states taxes web hosting services. Can you point me in the right direction?

Full Question: I'm trying to determine how each of the 50 states taxes (i.e. sales tax), or not, web hosting services. Can you point me in the right direction without having to go to each state's website individually? Thank you.
