Poll Watch: 63 Per Cent Oppose Taxing Online Transactions

According to the latest Rasmussen Poll.

Americans are used to being taxed for good and services they purchase in person, but they remain opposed to carrying that over to the online world.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of American Adults oppose the federal government taxing goods and services on the Internet. Twenty-four (24%) favor online taxation, while 13% are undecided about the idea.

Findings have not changed much from a year ago, when 61% opposed such taxes, while 20% approved. 

Majorities of Americans across all demographic categories oppose taxing goods and services on the Internet. But Democrats (31%) like the idea more than Republicans (19%) and adults not affiliated with either of the major political parties (22%).

This is not too shocking and why the California Legislature is struggling with Democrat sponsored legislation to tax online sales, the so-called Amazon Tax.
