    re: Senate approves online sales tax bill [W:244]

    Anyone want to tell me what 1% of a million is?

    Feel free to answer this easy math problem. A certain body that represents us doesn't know the answer I'm afraid.

    Does the question have a point?

    Yes, if I bring in a million dollars and my profit margin is 1% how much money did I make?

    I was wondering about the 1% figure. I didn't care to read all posts to find out its meaning, but you're correct, if the cost of compliance is that on the top line number, there would be a problem which is why I'm against the proposal...

    With a 1% profit margin, I would hope you did a lot more business than a million.

    I believe the typical profit margin for retailers is ~8%, so yea, if the top line cost of compliance works out to be 1%, then your income has just been reduced from $80K to $70K. That's a rather large impact...

    I was pondering when I eating dinner the profits margins of a clothing store which is about 1%- 2% when my mind wondered back to this bill. I just thought I would share the problem that came to me when eating is all.

    Good evening, AP.
