Dear Editor:

It has been said that “internet sales taxes levied on customers buying from out-of-state retailers will result in there being less spending power available in the local economy.” It is the government that receives the tax, not the local retailers. Local businesses can only suffer as a result. The real beneficiaries of increased sales–tax revenue are those to whom the government redistributes it—which may or may not be local businesses.
