    Democrats Turn to Online Sales Tax for New Revenues Following Debt Battle

    “Congress often says that small businesses are the backbone of the economic recovery, but these new collection costs will break the backs of many small online businesses,” said Steve, DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice, a tech trade group.
    “It’s a cruel irony to call this job-killing bill the ‘Main Street Fairness Act,’” DelBianco added. “Online sales are about the only way small retailers can survive being steamrolled by the big-box chains who are behind this bill.”
    Retailers are only required to collect sales tax in states where they also have a physical presence under a 1992 Supreme Court ruling known as the Quill decision. The high court ruled that a sales tax on out-of-state sellers would be an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce because of the complexity of states’ and municipalities’ sales tax rules.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    How is it pro-business to give an unfair advantage to online retailers versus in-state retailers?

    I could be wrong and I suppose I'll have to go look it up but it seems to me that I've seen Republican guvs supporting this also.

    {edit} Here we go.

    P.S. One does have to give Perry credit for vetoing the tax in Texas.

    What tax rate would be charged?

    If it is the states rate where the seller is, then the sellers in higher tax areas will not sell as much as online purchasers have a choice of who to purchase from.

    Well I don't support this as we could get more $$$ a different way: by stopping these stupid, useless wars, getting rid of waste in the Pentagon, SS, Medicare, and Medicaid. And taxing the derivatives market.

    I believe it would be the purchaser's state collecting the tax.

    Indeed. The "little guy" in this story is the in-state brick and mortar store that's at a competitive disadvantage because it has to charge sales tax on the exact item that an online retailer can sell tax free.

    Then the solution is obvious. Make it tax free for both.
