Internet sales tax collection begs for a fix

by J Scott Christianson, Columbia Daily Tribune Columnist

Back in August, Hank Waters opined that purchases made over the Internet should be subject to sales tax. His argument was based on the idea that it is not fair to exempt Internet purchases from taxation when purchases from local retailers are subject to sales tax. Beyond fairness, the impact of tax revenue loss to local and state government was also part of his argument. Waters’ arguments are correct.
