Republican Congressman Rodney Davis and Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin are in agreement… Internet businesses should pay the same sales taxes as brick-and-mortar stores.
Davis supports Durbin’s “Marketplace Fairness Act,” which requires online companies to collect the appropriate sales tax from customers and send it to the state where that customer lives.
The Taylorville Republican says the current system creates an unfair disadvantage for local stores who pay property taxes and hire local employees. Davis appeared live Tuesday on 970 WMAY's "Jim Leach Show."
