Is it a new tax or isn’t it?

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

In Massachusetts most goods you purchase are subject to a 6.25% sales tax. By law, if you purchase on-line or out of state and don’t pay the MA sales tax you MUST report and pay an equal 6.25% “use” tax. Not many people do.

A bill requiring internet vendors to charge and collect the sales tax is proposed. Is this a new tax or just enforcing/collecting the existing tax? Thoughts???
