Hoosiers Now Paying Online Sales Tax
Hoosiers might notice that they are paying a little more money than usual to shop online. As of yesterday, October 1, 2018, The Indiana Department of Revenue has begun enforcing a new law that states you will be charged the state's 7% sales tax when buying items online from out-of-state companies.
According to our media partners, Eyewitness News, the new Indiana law "lets the state collect the sales tax from online retailers even if they don't have a physical store in Indiana."
Eyewitness News elaborated more on the sales tax rule, saying that it "will apply to businesses that make more than $100,000 in sales from Hoosiers, or have more than 200 separate transactions in Indiana."
What do you think about this new Indiana law? Does it make you question online shopping at all?
