With High street stores its a little different as its harder to play the system but they will be paying a lower tax rate than an Indie bookshop pays. No-one has a duty to pay the max tax possible, the duty is to pay the least amount you are legally able to.
So if I buy from Waterstones or W H Smith then I know they are paying more taxes, that's a good reason to buy from them. When it comes to real books some companies (such as Wordery) pay taxes and undercut Amazon so win win.
