Wrong. I agree that some states, especially mine (CA) have sales taxes that are rapaciously high. However, it is NOT possible to purchase over the internet without incurring a tax liability under current law. We call that the Use Tax portion of the Sales and Use Tax, as most states like us do. But, it is the same tax. We are legally obligated to report the sale and pay the tax right now. This bill would just improve the system such that the tax is paid automatically.
I'm all for tax simplification and marginal rate reduction along with reduced government spending across the board. But, I can't agree that this is some sort of new tax.
