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.”
