Letter | Burdens on small business
I own a small retail business, selling industrial equipment in Bardstown. As part of that, in an effort to reach more customers, I also sell online — but the only place I have a store is in Bardstown.
Right now Congress is pushing the Marketplace Fairness Act which requires me to collect sales tax for every state in the U.S. That’s almost 10,000 various tax rates and regulations across the country. Collecting taxes and auditing conservatives is the responsibility of the IRS. Right now I pay three different people just to tell me how much I owe the IRS each month, I’m through wasting productive time on even more nonsense.
