To the Editor:
The headline on the letter from Sam Larson was startling: “Online sales tax exists, but isn’t collected.”
I had never heard of this and tried to think of any other taxes that exist but go uncollected and couldn’t think of one.
This is ridiculous. No matter where you buy a chair or a purse, the sales tax on the item needs to be paid when you make the purchase. I don’t want to raise taxes on anything, but I don’t think that people who sell stuff online should be exempt from the tax that all the stores in the mall have to charge.
