Bricks-and-Mortar Stores Trying To Force Internet Taxation

Town A has a 10% sales tax. Town B is 1 mile away, and it has a 0% sales tax. Obviously, the rational decision would be to shop in Town B. If the people in Town A want more business, they shouldn’t use guns to demand that Town B raise its sales taxes – they should lower their own sales taxes. Well Town B is Internetville, and it’s in Loophole County, which the leviathan government has so far failed to conquer. “This may well be the last holiday shopping season when bricks-and-mortar stores operate under a sales-tax handicap. A bipartisan consensus appears to be forming in Congress in favor of legislation that would close the tax loophole.”
