Hosting a Radio Show is Just Getting So…Ho Hum.

July 24, 2012

My second time around hosting a radio show, I completely forgot to mention it here. I guess that’s because, yawn, been there done that! I was on a major Clear Channel conservative talk station, in the 16th largest market in the US, for 4 hours and 10 minutes last Saturday. So what? Anyone can do that. Actually, it was pretty frickin AWESOME!!!!

Here are the links:

    It makes you really appreciate the dedication of radio hosts that on the air 5 hours a day, 6 days a week, for years and years (like Art Bell was)

    Your round table seemed to be confused about the issue of sales tax and the Internet. Brick and mortar stores are not asking for new taxes to be imposed on Internet sales. The problem is that Internet businesses are actively misinforming customers about their obligation to pay taxes on their purchases.

    For example, whether you buy a computer from a website or from the local computer store, most states have laws requiring you to pay a tax on your purchase. The local computer store is typically required by law to collect the tax from you, file paperwork about what taxes were collected, and transfer the collected money to the state. If you used a credit card for your purchase, the local store may even have to give the state more than what they actually collected from you. However the many website based Internet businesses are not required to collect the tax or file any of the related paperwork that the local brick and mortar store is required to do. Although the law still says that you have to pay the tax whether you bought it online or at the local store, many of the Internet based businesses mislead people with the suggestion that you can avoid the tax by buying online. There is no doubt that you can avoid paying the tax, but it is illegal for you to not pay the tax.

    If the brick and mortar stores do not collect the tax then they can face massive penalties. In order to collect the tax and transfer the tax to the state, the owner has to spend his time and/or money. Then even all rules are followrd correctly, they may still have to occasionally deal with the hassle and expense of a government audit.

    So some brick and mortar stores are asking for the playing field to be leveled somehow.

    I just hope to avoid paying the tax when I buy nothing at all.
