Miss. holding off on online tax collection plan

Months after Mississippi’s top tax official proposed requiring large online sellers to collect taxes on internet sales, he still hasn’t enacted the rule.

Revenue Commissioner Herb Frierson is still considering the proposal, spokeswoman Kathy Waterbury said Wednesday.

“The reason the rule remains under consideration is that we’re working on getting it right,” Waterbury told The Associated Press.
