I was born and grew up in South Africa. I moved to California in 1996 and in 2010 was afforded the privilege of studying the U.S. constitution and becoming an American citizen. I hope that being brought up in such a different political environment helps me bring a positive, if sometimes different, perspective on sales tax issues.
This is a temporary link while we do further research.
It is bad enough that we have to pay sales tax, and the often poor way in which our monies are used - but paying sales tax on a cash sales, to a small business that simply keeps that money for themselves.
That is NOT right!
