Idaho retailers on online sales taxes: ‘It is a fairness issue’

Among those who have testified in favor of HB 581, the Internet sales tax bill, at this morning's committee hearing is Idaho Retailers Association head Pam Eaton, who gave lawmakers a big list of all the retailers in Idaho. “By not having this, what we're actually doing is we're pushing money and business out of state - we're saying, 'It's OK, go online,'” Eaton said. “It is a fairness issue.”

She said of the complicated bill, “We have truly read and scoured over every page.”
