Sales Tax gets a word on Drudge.

Posted by salestax on April 15, 2009

Well, hey, I see these kinds of articles every day, except more on the local news scale, not the WSJ.  They’re especially dire in these times; however, just last year around this time it was a different story – they were all having increased sales tax revenues.

But, today, this link was listed on the Drudge Report.  Right above the Pres. with his new dog (left hand column) – so does this mean that Sales Taxes are more important than the President’s new dog?  Hmmm!  Maybe it made Drudge because it’s New York and New York isn’t in as bad shape as CA, but yet, it’s a large state that requires nat’l attention from the Wall Street Journal.

If you’d like to see how often this really happens, check out the Sales/Use Tax News page on this site.  I don’t break out the collections reports by topic, but I do share them in my all items news link reader.  Maybe I’ll start breaking them out for those of you who are curious to follow such fodder.
