Internet Sales Tax Bill Dies In House Committee

Posted By on Wed, Feb 29, 2012 at 12:56 PM

An effort to tax Internet sales died this morning on a tie 9-9 vote in the House Revenue and Taxation Committee.

Lewiston Republican Rep. Jeff Nesset had proposed that Idaho join a national effort to collect sales tax on out-of-state Internet purchases in order to, in his words, "level the playing field" with Idaho's brick-and-mortar businesses. He had predicted that Idaho could collect as much as $35 million a year from the tax.
