Poll shows overwhelming support for online sales tax collection

US News and World Report

A US News and World Report poll shows overwhelming support for online sales tax collection.

As we blogged about a few days ago, U.S. News and World Report recently hosted an online debate featuring eight arguments for and against online sales tax collection. Readers had the chance to vote on whether they agreed or disagreed with each argument. Now, a week later, we can see what the public thinks of online sales tax collection based on how the votes went.

The result? More than 4 to 1 in favor of online retailers collecting sales tax just like local retailers.

At last check, each of the 3 supporters of online sales tax collection had close to 1,000 votes for and approximately 300 votes against, while the 5 opponents of online sales tax collection had between 750 and 900 votes against them.

See the current tally and vote yourself!
