Internet Sales Tax, Here We Come?

The days of shopping online and being able to duck sales taxes may soon come to an end. The U.S. Senate is slated to vote on the Internet sales tax sometime next week, according to Reuters. Internet tax supporters, with backing from Walmart, Macy’s, and Best Buy, are hoping a Senate vote will give them enough political leverage to require Americans to pay sales tax whenever buying goods online. This could usher in the first national Internet sales tax ever. According to Reuters, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid filed a motion on Thursday supporting the proposal. Since Reid filed the motion, the Senate is now expected to vote as soon as Monday on the motion, but it could come later in the week. The way the law now works is that states can only require Internet retailers with physical stores within their borders to collect sales tax. This means that online shoppers are supposed to self-report sales tax when making purchases — but many don’t.” w/ photos

Governor Imposes Tax On The Rain

A controversial new tax for the amount of rain that falls on homes has been imposed by an environmentally-friendly governor. The ‘storm management fee’ will be enforced in the US state of Maryland after a decree from democrat leader Martin O’Malley. It was passed by the state legislature last year to raise revenue to comply with an order from the Environmental Protection Agency to clean-up the Chesapeake Bay estuary, according to the MarylandReporter.com. However, critics say the fees impose a financial burden on Marylanders while the state struggles to recover from recession.” w/ photos
