CA Use Tax collection efforts

Posted by salestax on August 13, 2007

A CA Tax professor blogs here to question whether the typical consumer is reporting their use tax.  As she points out, most consumers aren’t even aware of this responsibilities.  And so, she explains it’s purpose and then goes into the future of what CA would like to do to make the reporting a requirement.  I’m just wondering what this would do to the consumers who really don’t use the internet and catalogs for purchases.  Would these people be suspects and unjustly audited by CA state auditors.  I’m not fond of these auditors in my place of business, let alone what they would come up with if they were forced into my home and questioned every purchase of knick knacks.   

 Or is the professor mistaken and this will only be a requirement for business owners?  If not, I wonder how many people may submit to this scare tactic and report undue use tax out of fear – thus the state gets money its not entitled to?
