Do you agree with the Online Sales Tax?

obviously no consumer would be in favor of it, but the argument is that, if they take the tax off and there is no tax for online sales, then why should there be one in actual real stores.

so objectively, what do you think about the online sales tax? keep it or get rid of it? and why?

would a repeal of the online tax influence your online purchasing habits?

    Dump it. Online trading spurs globalization. If states and the U.S. begin taxing online transactions, U.S. will turn away international business. Tax receipts and exchanges will be lower as online retailers will be willing to trade anywhere but the United States because only the United States has such a stupid tax which cuts into everybody's returns. Furthermore, international vendors will never pay the online sales tax, and they won't because they are not U.S. citizens and the U.S. has no such jurisdiction to pursue collection beyond its borders. The online sales tax is a deterrant to business and it cannot possibly be enforced.

    It is a ridiculous proposition. Sales tax usually applies only to States and local governments anyway.

    If they KEEP the online sales tax, it should be handled exactly the same way as the REAL TIME sales tax... and there should also be a tax FREE time like there is in real time. I would prefer not to have ANY taxes, but then that would mean we could have no government because there would be no money to pay for the government--hey wait a second... NO GOVERNMENT????? NO BUSH? YEEE HAW---lets ditch those taxes!!!! hahahaha

    sure, write a verify to the government is precisely what you're meant to do. Interstate revenues are actually not tax-unfastened. If the broking does not carry jointly them, you are able to desire to voluntarily pay the revenues tax. in the previous days, california had a separate variety you mailed in for each transaction. Now they only want you including it up and sticking it on a line on your state tax variety.
