IDAHO – Senate OKs Bill To Collect Sales Tax On Online Retail Sales

Despite some hesitation about the creation of a new Idaho tax relief fund, the Senate agreed Thursday to pass a bill giving the state the authority to collect internet sales and use tax, which would then be funneled into the new relief fund. It’s estimated the taxes could bring an additional $30 million to the state. The Senate voted, 24-11, to pass the bill. It’ll head back to the House, where they must concur with the Senate amendments before it can head to the governor’s desk for signing.
