Does this mean the state will lower property tax and help fund the schools. I think not they will take more of our money and not do anything worth while.

Sherrod Brown said, "Because of uncollected state and local tax revenue, our state has lost nearly $630 million in revenue," Brown said in an emailed statement Wednesday. "That's funding for first responders, teachers and road repairs that Ohio and local governments are missing out on."

The article says $350 million. Is this another Sherrod Brown nose growing feat? Can this guy ever tell the truth?

If I had an online business, that would be more incentive to make sure that business never grew past the $1 million level. Imagine trying to collect sales tax for every county in America and send it to the right state!

Obamacare gives enough reason not to grow a company above 49 employees - what does Congress want? I guess a bunch of businesses that stop growing at 49 employees and just under $1 million in sales. I'd move any business I had to China if I wanted to grow any bigger.

I think it's only fair to let businesses compete on equal grounds. Either eliminate the sales tax completely or make internet businesses play by the same rules. I'm in favor of no taxes but that will never happen. As a small business owner, I see people handle my merchandise all the time and go online to save the tax. The item might be the exact same price but 7% on a $500 item is a big savings.

Taxation with or without representation is tyranny.

All they can do is complain about the money they think they are loosing. What about the money they are gaining from businesses that are selling online here. If you buy online you usually have to pay shipping so its a wash.
