Sales tax is in the news more than ever today with national legislation being debated in Congress, and many states struggling to gain a hold on internet sales and the related tax liabilities. The current controversies between a certain internet seller and a number of state revenue officials certainly made the front page in 2011. Sales tax policy is a fascinating subject and the internet revolution is pushing discussion of sales taxes to the public center. These developments indicate the high level of concern held by business leaders, politicians and bureaucrats in the sales tax field. The current focus on sales tax policy will hopefully produce a more rational sales tax compliance environment.
