Interesting. I think the younger people they speak of here probably don't have the money to do much shopping on line even if they are tech savvy. I've never thought of myself as rich/wealthy but it looks like I am; my earnings and my shopping habits from this article fit that description. I tried my hardest to find something this year in department stores but was unable to find it so I bought it on line. That is just my 'go to' way to shop any time of year.

Very funny article, is more about the legislators trying to justify an online sales tax to all manufactures that will drive up inflation.

For instances true middle class income is actually at $250K per person in a household. A $75K combined income is actually 1/4th what a single middle income really is. The rich exceeds individuals incomes of $250,000, every thing below $100K household is poverty.

Household incomes are combined to hide the poverty level of people incomes, it also makes for higher income tax collection if it remains an individual income. Another double standard in Utah.

Most on line shopping is because retailers have had to downsize stock they keep on hand that also limits local sales and it forces people to online shopping. Retailers not having things in stock means loss of taxes.

Online shopping is not to avoid taxes, its to buy what you want and can't find locally. Retailers are the losers and why states are losing sales tax and what it really means the recession is still worse then the state wants to admit. Maybe the state should invoke a NIS (Not In Stock) tax on retailers to insure diversity of supply.

My boss probably makes $150,000 a year and is always shopping online while "working."
