Sid Salter: Lawmakers should review Ala. online sales tax solution

Across the state line over in Alabama, all Amazon online purchases made by shoppers who live in Alabama will have an additional eight percent sellers use tax.

That means that our neighbors in Alabama have found a way to level the playing field between online sellers and brick-and-mortar retailers in their state — and inequity that continues to plague Mississippi retailers and the state’s tax revenue stream that has been long dependent on sales taxes collected by those storefront retailers.
