Go online and find out what the state and local sales tax rates are. For example, in Texas the state sales tax rate is 6.25 percent and the local tax in Burkburnett, TX, is 2 percent for a combined sales and use tax of 8.25 percent, which is the maximum allowed in Texas. Once you have established what the sales tax is in the local area, price four (4) different products online and in local retail stores, comparing what you would pay online, without having to pay state and local sales tax, and what you would pay locally for the same products. Share what they have found with the class on the Discussion Board.What product had the greatest discrepancy between the cost of an online purchase and a local purchase? Which product(s) had very little difference in the price if purchased online versus purchasing locally? Whydo you think this is the case. Does knowing that purchasing items online, thereby avoiding state and local taxes and ultimately decreasing the amount of money state and local governments bring in to provide services to citizens, influence their purchasing decisions in any way? Does knowing that purchasing items online, to avoid state and local taxes, hurts local businesses affect their decisions in any way?
