Iowa Considering E-Book Sales Tax - Forbes

If Mom doesn't feel good, I don't either.
Mom is still fighting that nasty tummy flu bug, so Panzer only made a short trip into the Catosphere today. Our hurried kitty stopped in at the Forbes.com site. There he found a post about Iowa imposing a sales tax on ebooks.

According to the post by Ellen Duffer, Iowa is considering instituting a new state sales tax. The sales tax would only apply to companies which have a physical presence in Iowa and also sell online ebooks. The post states that means Barnes and Noble and Apple because they both have bricks and mortar stores in Iowa where they sell electronics and also have online stores for ebooks.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... This kitty knows how to keep new bricks and mortar stores who also sell ebooks online from moving into your state ... Put a sales tax on them."

This is a longish-short post. It looks long, but that's because it has an advertisement in the middle. Bring a cup of tea and half a muffin for today's reading selection.
