Breeds Hill's Profile
|Display Name:||Breeds Hill|
If a shopper buys on-line they do not use the roads to shop which reduces traffic congestion and wear and tear on the roads which reduces costs for the local government. The delivery company does use the roads and it is paying local taxes for their usage as well as local property taxes. Think of 200 customers driving to the mall, or wherever, to buy products as opposed to one UPS truck making its rounds each day. Which activity costs the government more money? Now if the states and localities had reasonable sales tax rates this would not be an issue, however, for many people the sales tax takes a huge bite out of one's spendable income.
