MI lawmakers urged to collect internet sales tax

LANSING (WKZO) -- Lawmakers are weighing whether or not to start taxing internet purchases in Michigan. Donna Arduin, the former state budget director under Governor John Engler, says it's time we start doing so.  

Arduin says that brick and mortar retailers are being treated unfairly by having to charge a sales tax, while their online competitors don't. She adds that getting tax revenue out of websites, whether they be Amazon or some mom and pop flower shop, shouldn't be hard. Anyone selling anything online is already collecting taxes.  

Arduin says that if Michigan starts collecting online sales taxes, then it will be able to lower other taxes.
