Re: Internet Sales Tax passes Senate; fate in House uncertain

said by openbox9:

No, the reality is that states are beyond tired of their citizens skirting their laws and losing out on huge streams of revenue.

Exactly in most states like mine citizens are actually SUPPOSED to send in the sales tax themselves to the state. Most don't. Heck I don't. So 99.9% of us are actually tax cheats. Now people are going to rant about not being able to cheat on their taxes anymore.

Not that ignorance is an excuse, but I'm willing to bet most consumers don't understand that a lot of states require payment of use taxes for items ordered interstate via the Internet. The outrage over online retailers collecting sales taxes stems from this ignorance. A lot of consumers believe this is a new tax.
