Local Retailers Push For Online Sales Tax
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.
