There is a good article in the San Francisco Chronicle today by Bill Dombrowski, the CEO of the California Retailers Association.
The article does a nice job outlining the need to change the current state of affairs related to internet retailers refusing to collect local sales taxes, while all other retailer are required to do so.
Oddly, the article does not mention the Main Street Fairness Act (HR 5660) now before congress – an omission which can only be related to printed page layout constraints. We commented to add this important detail for the readers of the Chronicle. Naturally, we also pointed out that TaxCloud can now calculate the accurate local sales tax for every jurisdiction in the country — for free!
