      Poll: Internet Sales Tax

      Poll: Internet Sales Tax

      Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says senators have reached a deal to delay voting on a bill to tax Internet sales until after senators return from a weeklong vacation.

      Reid says the Senate vote on passage of the bill would be May 6.

      A handful of senators from states without sales taxes were blocking the bill, which has widespread bipartisan support in the Senate.

      The bill would empower states to require online retailers to collect state and local sales taxes for purchases made over the Internet. Under the bill, the sales taxes would be sent to the states where a shopper lives.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Should states require online retailers to collect state and local sales taxes for purchases made over the Internet? Yes or no? Why or why not?
