OK DNews, lets have Dan Jones run a poll.

How many Utah taxpayers declare their on-line purchases in their Utah Income Tax returns for sales tax collection to be paid as part of their State Income Tax?

I would bet it is close to zero.

Most Americans want a large welfare/warfare state. They want free public education, roads, welfare in various forms, and wars being fought in various nations to bring them democracy and equality. AND, they don't want to pay for any of it.

bloodhound is very rude in manner. most people i know never want war and want only what they should get social security and medicare that we have paid into out whole life. and really i dont want to pay more taxes but i will if the rich will but they dont because tax codes are made for the rich not the rest of us. they have so many right offs. they can have 4 houses and put them as corporate holding for bussiness and not pay any property tax. it goes on all the time. they call them advertising and entertament holdings. tax codes are written by people put in office by the rich. poor people or average americans no longer get in office. wallmart lobbies they jump to tax.

The internet sales tax is about fairness among retailers, it's not about a tax increase. But leave it to the tea party to twist the story to suit their mindless set. The internet seller has had a free ride for long enough, time to come to equality with brick and mortar sellers.

Vote for this change, Chaffetz. It's a good thing. Don't get lost in the fog of a tea party.

And how many employers who hire illegal aliens collect and remit income taxes to the IRS or state tax department? So far illegal alines and employers are not required to pay income taxes, but illegals can collect refunds no incomes on jobs they didn't have.

This sales tax law is an illegal tax law for the federal government to enact let alone enforce. Then Point of Sale tax in other states is illegal. Utah has to repeal its phony POS tax laws aimed at consumers who visit other states.

States are becoming brazen harassing commerce and industry and their citizens to sustain their corruption and illegal spending. States are not out of money, they are allowing illegal entitlements to illegal foreign nationals. Utah budget is more the 70% to education and welfare yet they have resisted to reason and reality to not cut those departments funds.

A federal law sales tax will be impossible to enforce or collect. Each state has the right to stop their states from collecting sales taxes to send to other states. And states that don't collect sales tax won't volunteer billion dollar departments to collect sales taxes for other states.

Iket: Don't worry, Bloodhound has not factual data for their comment, so it's just a far-fetched opinion!
