To whomever is promoting the new internet sales tax, please stop.Posted Monday, July 19, 2010, at 8:59 AM
I made the headline because I can not tell anymore where the party lines stop between Democrat and Republican. If the GOP is really conservative and pro-business, they need to get back on track,but ......
ANYWAY this is about the proposed sales tax on internet sales. If you have a location in a given state, it is nothing new that you have to collect sales tax for sales within that state, but this law will change everything.
I could has it out here, but this article says some good things so http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/opinion...
When you consider the rising costs of mail or shipping the savings by not having to pay tax was a small benefit, but never got close to the expense. It is not unusual for our customers to pay much more than the item originally cost them for shipping.
I believe our internet edge is the convenience of not having to go to the item and being able to sit in your pajamas while you shop, or run a quick shopping errand from your desk during lunch. (Yes, I know. Some do much more than that and take away from productivity at work.)
Any thoughts on this?
