Some recent news

Just a couple of items I picked up in my reading:

Florida - sales tax holiday for clothing, school supplies, etc. with a price of less than $50 beginning 7/23/05 to 7/31/05.

Ohio - delays implementation of destination based sourcing from 7/1 to 5/1/06 and for some, 2008. This has been a big issue in Ohio and further complicates SSTP.

Massachusetts - Happy Meal toys are considered to be purchased for resale as part of the meals and therefore the restaurant doesn't have to pay tax on them. I know you're all breathing a sigh of relief on that one.

And from the "Felony Watch"

Restaurant owner in Florida charged with tax theft

Car dealer sentenced to 2 years

Car dealer OK's plea deal

It seems like it's always car dealers and restaurants that get in the serious trouble on sales tax issues.
