Why do Conservatives think there should be no Online Sales Taxes?

Why are we giving some businesses an advantage over another business?

If we encourage people to shop online, we will hurt small business retail shops on the streets and reduce the need for stores.

I say every product needs to be taxed fairly among each other regardless on how you purchased it. Obviously shipping is another tax, but that is what you have to pay to get that service sent to you.

    Ok if all taxes should be equal why does New York have 8.5 sales tax in some counties and 7.25 in other counties? I mean shouldn't it all be fair. Plus New Yorker's have an additional tax of approximately 32 cents per gallon that other States don't have so shouldn't they have to get rid of that. I mean that isn't fair to New York State filling station owner's.

    See none of it is fair. You pick and choose where you live and you pay the taxes. You decide where you buy from and whether local or off the internet. This is just another way for the government to get more of your dollars and has nothing to do with being fair to other businesses

    Many more mom and pop operations sell on line. Retail stores are mostly owned by giant corporations.

    The small brick and motor become equals on the net, throw a sales tax on them and they will lose sales to states that don't have them. Why is it the big internet stores like amazon want the sales tax?
