Ecommerce Is A Driving Force Of The Home Based Business
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

We'll assume that eCommerce means the buying and selling of goods through the Internet. Commerce is all about moving goods across the world, exchanging money. Every country depends on its people spending money to keep commerce growing, moving, changing hands. Troubles result when people refuse to spend money for the goods needed as it keeps commerce and eCommerce moving when money is changing hands.

As we all know, there are some big tax issues revolving around eCommerce. Amazon has refused to collect sales tax from its buyers and some states are pushing for a change in the law. Affiliates were shut down by Amazon rather than give into the states that were claiming their rights to tax revenue on Amazon sales in their own states.

Obviously, the Internet has created some very real issues between companies that have a presence [brick and mortar] stores vs the online merchant stores without a local presence. Orders [stuff] purchased at the local store means you pay a local sales tax vs no tax to the online eCommerce store. If you pay or order through PayPal then taxes for the local state are collected.

How you and I feel is probably a given when it comes to eCommerce. It's rather nice to buy Christmas gifts or Birthday gifts without a tax added onto the balance. However, if we were a local merchant it would probably get our attention finding out that a competitor in another state is getting by without collecting tax revenue.

Sure, shipping is an added cost when you purchase online. However, some merchants ship your product free when you place lots of business with them. Actually, when you add the cost of driving to the local store, eating lunch at a fast food, buy gas and groceries too, it becomes a moot point, let's just call it dead.

We could throw in the reality that we don't care if there's a local store or not. Leaving the car in the garage is our choice, then we miss all the other distractions that cost extra money. Most of us can probably suggest a change in our Federal tax code to make it fair vs worrying about the uncollected sales taxes.

Where should we be looking for the missing tax money? You don't have to look very far and you've collected 10 times more revenue from missing revenue vs sales taxes uncollected.

How about Corzine and his $2 billion of missing funds? It amazes us that the Government can find a little guy with a small business owing $500 in taxes vs millions of dollars loaned to a start up company and no one has a clue where all the cash has gone. Stink it up!! Help Obama find the LOST cash that has slipped through!
