    Well if the truth be told, beer never did anything for me and except in Germany where beer is, well, beer, I don't drink the stuff.

    Hi there,

    Not being funny but there will be a nationwide sales tax on internet sales within 2 years. Once it is place there will also be local taxes on internet access.

    The state legislatures have been working on this since the Supreme Court said there has to be a unified tax code SO sale tax will be collected at point of destination, not point of origin or point of sale. Just think of all the rich towns collecting more and more taxes and the poor towns crying racism and class warfare. Ought to be fun.

    All towns that sold-out for warehouse space will lose.
    All towns that sold-out for strip malls will lose.
    All towns that sold-out for housing developments will win.
    All towns that didn't sell-out will just keep on keeping on.

    Has anyone ever seen taxes go down?
    When's the revolution, or do we just sit down and collect welfare?

    I already pay tax on internet access, it is collected as our local access tax, so not worried about that one,....

    I have my doubts we will have taxes on internet sales in two years, is this your speculation, or do you have an inside track to something that we don't know about,, they have been trying to do it for a number of years, but still have not been able to overturn the law in place that prevents the tax yet.

    Hi Dave,

    No inside track, just observations. The Supreme Court made their ruling approx. 2yr ago, the states do not need the same tax code or amount, just this same style (point of destination, sales or origin). Washington state jumped on this with both feet instantly, so have most other states.

    The town of Kent, WA stands to lose over $5 million per year in sale tax collections (they never told anyone they were collecting). Wonder why no one ran for re-election. Federal Way, WA stands to gain this much and more for the same reason.

    All the town govt. are gearing up for the change now, so expect the internet sales tax within 2 years.

    Just being my neurotic self again.

    I think if the internet becomes taxed it will turn into a virtual warzone and be hacked to death by squads of hackers determined to bring it down. But maybe I've been watching too many hollywood movies

    Why should they. The USA is the most under-taxed nation on earth (just ask our non-US members!)

    The disparity between rich and poor, that gulf on it's way to becoming an ocean, will bring the revolution.

    I think further discussion should best be taken to the Soapbox!

    Because we don’t get anything for our money. One important thing you left out about other places paying higher taxes is that they get medical etc.. We get nothing of course unless you are a foreigner right off the boat then you get anything you need while the American citizens footing the bills keep getting screwed...
