Is An Internet Sales Tax Coming?
A movement is slowly building in Washington to banish one of the biggest perks of shopping online: not paying sales tax.

Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.) this morning enlisted Republican South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds (R) and other state lawmakers to rally support for his proposed Main Street Fairness Act, which would make it easier for states to go after the money.
