This is what politicians mean by "closing tax loopholes."
A proposed online sales tax has been offered as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, reports the Daily Caller.
How can anti-tax Republicans justify the tax? Real easy.
Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi is calling the lack of an online sales tax “the most overlooked tax loophole.”
BTW, it's called, in the ultimate in misleading labeling, the Market Fairness Tax. and is co-sponsored Sens. Dick Durbin and Enzi, who have offered the bill as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.
The bill would allow states to collect sales taxes from internet retailers located in other states, an approach that also has been backed by prominent GOP governors, including Cato favorite Chris Christie.
