Online Sales Tax
A federal bill that could cost online retailers and customers more money passed a second Senate vote Thursday

Internet tax supporters are hoping that a vote in the U.S. Senate as early as today will finally give them enough political leverage to require Americans to pay sales taxes when shopping online.
A group of Republicans and Democrats yesterday reintroduced a federal bill that could cost online retailers and customers more money.
