Retailers push for online tax
Store owners: Time to level playing field
Cyber Monday is increasingly popular with shoppers, but the organization representing brick-and-mortar retailers in Illinois says changes still are needed to level the playing field.
The Illinois Retail Merchants Association said there needs to be a requirement for all online retailers to collect the same state sales taxes that other merchants must add to their customers’ bills.
“There shouldn’t be a question of tax based on where you buy something,” said IRMA President David Vite. “The tax is supposed to be paid. If someone orders something from an online retailer or a catalog retailer that doesn’t collect the tax, the customer owes the money to the state.”
