The company says it will add 5,000 full-time jobs at its U.S. distribution centers, which currently employ about 20,000 workers who pack and ship customer orders.

Amazon Sets Up in Kentuckiana for Quick Delivery

While online retailer Amazon prepares to open a major distribution center in Southern Indiana, some say the company could soon begin offering customers in the Louisville region same-day delivery.

Until recently, Amazon has avoided charging sales tax to customers in many states where it had no physical presence. Now, the company has given into that fight and has made deals in states like Indiana to begin charging that tax in the next couple years.
