Something from California that makes sense, internet non-taxesPosted Wednesday, February 23, 2011, at 1:31 PM
It is being reported that a Republican Congressman and Democrat Congresswoman introduced the "Supporting the Preservation of Internet Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses" resolution last week. The resolution opposes states that are introducing new taxes on small online businesses, including requirements to collect and remit sales taxes for out-of-state online purchases.
Obviously I like the idea but I am also impressed that it came from both sides of the aisle. An extension to this great idea would be to do the same for Federal Income taxes, but we take it where we can get it.
An argument heard previously in favor of taxes is that it would level the playing field with 'brick n' mortar' stores, but when you calculate the shipping costs incurred with an internet transaction, it usually balances out, so more taxes would UN-level the playing field. In my opinion, of course.
