Michigan House committee advances Internet sales tax bill

LANSING (WKZO) -- The state House will soon take up legislation to collect additional sales taxes on purchases made over the Internet.

The House Tax Policy Committee advanced the legislation, dubbed the "Main Street Fairness" package, Wednesday with bi-partisan support.  The bills would force more online retailers to collect sales tax when the sale is made, rather than Michigan residents reporting those purchases on their income taxes.

Tea Party Republicans are opposed to the bill, calling it a new tax.
