No, but I'm for less taxing anyway.

If all out-of-state internet purchases were taxed then the retailer would have to collect sales tax for all 45 states that collect sales tax...sounds like a nightmare for the business owner to me. The brick and mortar retailers need to adapt and also conduct internet sales if they want to level the playing field.

Sounds like something this Dog and Pony show congress would work on first.

It is going to harm retailers using the internet. Shipping and handling charges are already through the roof and added sales tax is going to decrease sales. But hey the idiots of congress are always looking for away to tax tax tax...it is probably going to be a reality and soon.

Taxes do mean something...

Hertz has just announced that they are moving their entire corporate headquarters to SW Florida from NJ. 700 jobs!

Everyone was beaming at the love fest that was the formal announcement of Hertz’s global headquarters moving to Southwest Florida.

“Florida is the center of the U.S. if not the worldwide travel industry,” said Hertz CEO Mark Frissora.

Area politicians from the governor on down were at hand, crowding the Hertz rental counter at Southwest Florida International Airport.

They were tickled to death.

“This is the most significant economic event in the history of Lee County,” said Frank Mann, Lee County commissioner. He means since the county was founded in 1887, he said.

Those workers will not have to pay out a portion of their income for state income tax either. Florida does not have a state income tax!

That's right...a better climate and lower taxes. Warm breezes, white sandy beaches and low taxes...not too bad!
