If you look up sales tax rates from across the country, Texas is actually on the lower side when one adds in what the limit is on what local authorities can add for local revenue. Many of the highest total sales tax rates states also have an income tax. I keep holding my breath on a state income tax. I think if the politicians in Texas were not so afraid of the huge public reaction to a state sales tax, we would already have one.

And I personally hope they stay afraid of public opinion. If I wanted to live in a state that taxed me to death, I would have stayed in California went I "retired" from the Air Force.

Re: Online Sales Taxes is being collected

But what if you buy something from out of state that is not obtainable from a brick-and-mortar store here in Texas? How is that stick the state is using (the tax) to make you buy local effective in that case?
