Ho Hum reporting on the sales tax revenue lost on internet purchasing.

Posted by salestax on February 24, 2009

Maybe someone should tell the “oldest news paper in IL” about the SSUTA initiative that is trying to solve the problem of interstate sales especially those over the Internet.

IL is not a willing participant in this progressive group of states, because they might have to change a few tax statutes on the books.  And, heaven forbid, they do anything constructive in IL.  I see them quickly becoming the next state of financial ruin like California.

Anyway, you can read about it here.  Maybe the writer of this opinion will try digging for what the real issue is and look at some ways to solve it instead of merely pointing out what the problem is.  We all know what it is, it’s been reported for over a decade.  Time to look forward and not back.
