Otter Backs Internet Sales Tax

Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter backs taxing Internet sales to level the playing field between virtual businesses and brick-and-mortar establishments on Idaho's Main Street.

Idaho has a use tax, meaning everybody who buys over the Internet is required to report them to the State Tax Commission when they pay their annual income taxes. However, few people actually report them/Associated Press. More here.
