Online Sales Tax Looks Probable

Online Sales Tax Looks Probable

Internet shoppers are moving closer to paying sales taxes for their online purchases. But the fight is far from over.

The Senate voted yesterday to advance a bill that would impose state and local sales taxes on purchases made over the Internet. Senate Democratic leaders wanted to finish work on the bill this week, before leaving town for the recess. But they were blocked by a handful of senators from states without sales taxes. Montana is one of four states that have no sales tax.
