Are You a Tax Cheat If You Shop Online Tax-Free?

Buy anything on the Internet lately without paying sales tax? In all but a few states, you're probably a tax cheat.

That's right, even if Internet retailers don't collect sales tax at the time of the purchase, you're required by law to pay it in 45 states and the District of Columbia.

Here's the problem for states: hardly anyone pays the tax, and there's not much states can do about it.

Me too.

Another example of the many maddening unforeseen consequences of our needlessly and massively complex tax system is having to work with senior co-workers who insist on living in tax-free Nevada while I'm stuck here in Northern California. In a much more "perfect" (tax equitable) world, I would only have to walk down the hall or make a local call instead of waiting until their weekly visit to the plant (most often to coordinate with our system administrator regarding their remote access equipment).

Some Christians say render to Caesar? Ok then, as long as they imagine Rom. 13 should be applied, we'll have to accept there are 50 Caesars, so render to one who does a better job of it.

In the US you are free to purchase anywhere. The issue is that most states already have "Use Tax" on the books. It has been hard to collect though. If you pay out of state sales tax of 5% and you bring that item back to your state and your state charges 6% sales tax, you owe your state 1%.

Do I like paying taxes? No. Do I think government wastes and charges too much in taxes? Yes. Does that mean I can lie on my tax return and not be committing a sin? No.

You do have the option of rendering to another "Caesar" in this country. All you have to do is move! Why do so many retirees move to Florida? The warm winters is only part of it. LOW taxes is probably the primary reason.

I agree there is a problem in this country, a simple flat tax or national sales tax would be much fairer and easier. Fortunately we have a future to look forward to, where we won't worry about money or belongings.

It comes under States' Rights.

There shouldn't be a problem with purchasing out of state, as you will pay their sales tax, if any. The choice of where to buy comes under the free enterprise, competetive system. Why not buy where it works best for the buyer? It is exactly the right thing to do. States that want to collect on out of state purchase are typically liberal run, high tax States like mine. Or Michigan. Both losing population by the way, but liberals never get it. Instead of making it a place where business and people want to go, they try compensating for lost revenue by increasing taxes even more. The idea of competing for dollars never occurs to them, so they get upset when sensible States do compete.

Some Christians say render to Caesar? Ok then, as long as they imagine Rom. 13 should be applied, we'll have to accept there are 50 Caesars, so render to one who does a better job of it.

When civil disobedience reaches a certain level, the laws need to be reconsidered. The government has already deputized businesses and employers to confiscate taxes and not give people any option. People are rebelling against use taxes, since there is no practicable way to track them (except in special circumstances). I think it's a sign that taxation has gone too far, and people see taxes as going beyond what is necessary to maintain a civil society.

I would prefer not to pay it, but I calculate the total and pay it every year. Not doing so would be dishonest, and Christ said to rend unto Caesar.
I know a guy who purchased his RV out of state so as to avoid high taxes. I suppose if MI thought there were a significant number of people doing this they would have a place on their tax forms to cover the tax difference.

I think I've heard that before. I shall try to understand why participating in the theft of the bread that others have earned is not against God, depending on who is doing the thieving.
