The planet Scott

No online Sales taxFlorida Governor Rick Scott says he wants a “revenue-neutral level playing field” when it comes to collecting sales taxes for both online and brick-and-mortar retail sales.

But, instead of everyone paying the same tax on the same items, thereby adding to badly needed state tax revenues, Scott wants to collect up to one billion dollars in new online taxes so that he can REDUCE offline taxes by the same amount.

Not only is this plan not “on the level”, it is not well thought out.

Scott and the rest of his Tallahassee toadies demonstrate no clue how to actually collect sales taxes from online, out of state companies.

They don’t even know how to collect online sales taxes already required of Florida residents.

Also, if The State collects 6% online sales taxes, what about counties such as Hillsborough which need a few extra pennies to pay for things like stadiums for the Bucs (and maybe the Rays)?
