 BOSTON (CBS) –  If local retailers have their way, online shopping will end up costing you more money in the future.

On Thursday, Massachusetts retailers were expected to be on Beacon Hill pushing a bill that adds the state’s sales tax onto online purchases.

Supporters say the bill will allow in-state businesses to compete and will level the playing field.

Massachusetts says it loses more than 300-million dollars a year in non-taxed online sales.
