If you tax, tax fairly

The Marketplace Fairness Act whizzed through the United States Senate by a 69-27 vote Monday. The bill would allow states to collect sales tax on Internet purchases. That is a policy good, sensible, fair and evenhanded. Those qualities may not count for much in the House of Representatives, where the never-ever-vote-for-a-tax mindset has excessive influence. If the online sales tax dies as many expect, it will continue to be federal policy that mainstreet retailers be forced to collect taxes that their online competitors are not. That puts bricks-and-mortar stores at an automatic price disadvantage of at least 8 percent in this state, often more. That is a tax burden selectively imposed, and unfair on its face.
