I was surprised that I was not able to buy some parts from a major Ford hardware dealer.
It seems the sales tax issue for major corp is not economically feasible. As I understand it for an out of state corp to get a sales tax permit they must submit to a considerable opening of their books and a huge potential tax liability.
I have noticed that several vendors just brought some display items and all sales had to be via telephone and mailed to your door. I have also noticed a lot of better tool dealers and just others that no longer attend.
I personally have stopped selling and dropped my transient vendor tax because it was not worth the potential problems. I just go to walk around and buy stuff anymore anyway.
I assume not much can be done about this problem. Are there any changes expected in the future?
I have to wonder how the increased need for state revenue might impact the face to face sales at places like Hershey.
Please note I have intentionally steered clear of political comments. Please keep to the subject in any comments.
