Hot Topic Alert - Sales Tax

Extending sales taxes is a perennial idea of policymakers and commentators. The idea has been around for a long time. Is it catching on?

The national economy is switching from the production of things, to one based on the provision of services, arguably requiring a response on the tax front. Another argument for the extension of the tax is that it would allow a reduction of the overall sales tax rate, or a reduction or elimination of a state’s income tax.
