Should States Tax Internet Sales?
I'm surprised such an old outdated law exist (only pay taxes where they have a physical store).
That is deadly for any local community, and keeps many unemployed out of work, too.
I see the poll has taken a turn to the no side.
Well, atleast make it fair then, and get rid of sales taxes all together !
Who cares about the State and National debts ? May the future pay for it all !
Why in the world do you get so upset when the poll doesn't go the way you want? I was going to vote "yes" but since you don't like the "no" answer, can you guess which I voted?
The poll says "state" not province so you should probably stay out altogether.
Hey, we felt the Bush f-up here (global recession), and are feeling the Greek one, too, and all we need now is more US National debt and more US currency devaulation.
We live in a Global world since a few decades, if you haven't noticed it, yet !
But, hopefully all is not lost, and the BRIC countries just might take up the slack, when the US goes broke.
Oh Good, start sending those nice new bills of yours to every foreign country there is. Thanks for helping!
Atleast you agree, those are awesome new nice bills
Anyway....back to the poll....states have got to tap every revenue source possible and taxing Internet sales would be an ideal revenue source.
No new taxes. Cut spending.
right! we don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem !
Closing tax loopholes isn`t really adding new taxes.
It most certainly is a new tax if you don't pay it now.
Let's remember that the above opinion comes from a man who told advised another person to open a hot dog cart because amongst other advantages, the money earned is off the books. This same man also routinely smuggled in meats , liquours and other goods from the United States into his country, in an effort not to pay his beloved V.A.T. taxes.
In short, Klein is a fan of taxes other people has to pay, not so much of a fan of taxes that he has to pay.
Looks like even the software that calculates the poll is favoring the "No" vote.
4 for yes =33.33%
8 for no =66.67 %
It looks like the "no" vote got an extra .01 percent.
Hit that nail on the head.
Indeed, that nail was driven in with just one strike.
Don't forget, Friday (24th) is the big day (Quebec Nt'l Day). Looking forward to the announcement of earnings from the hot dog cart.
Yes, I am as well. I am sure that no other long established and experienced hot dog vendors will be at the event that Klein is setting up at. And even if there are, I am sure they will welcome with open arms, the new kid on the block who wants to be their competition.
