Some states are fighting
to tax online purchases--Alabama included.
That's why states like Alabama are fighting to tax online sales.
Culver said no online
taxes means billions of dollars in revenue lost to local and county
"That's not good for our local businesses, and not good for the governmental tax base for Alabama, Dothan, and Houston County. We just want to be fair and if there is tax due, then tax is paid," said Culver.
So the states are
fighting back, urging Congress to pass a Main Street Fairness Act.
Culver said if Congress fails to pass the Main Street Fairness Act, cities could miss out on millions of dollars in tax revenue this holiday shopping season.
