Internet Sales Tax.
Yesterday the US Congress introduced a law with bipartisan support allowing all states the ability to collect sales tax from large online sellers - regardless whether they have a nexus location in the state. This will be an issue to watch. Aside from the obvious state benefit, it could reduce sales - and jobs - for Washington-based companies who sell online around the country. What are your thoughts on this issue?
