CA may soon require sales tax on online purchases
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Californians may soon have to pay taxes when ordering from out-of-state online retailers.
Assm. Nancy Skinner, D-Alameda, has introduced legislation in Sacramento to require out-of-state online retailers to collect the same sales tax that California businesses have to collect.
California-based retailers say that is only fair because right now, they are at a disadvantage competing for in-state's shoppers' business.
