The sales tax is a key revenue source for many local governments across the United States. The sales tax was originally developed for a bricks and mortar world. As electronic commerce becomes more relevant it challenges the continued viability of the sales tax. This webinar will overview the major challenges to the sales taxes, the impact these challenges could have on local governments, and the opportunities to modernize and adapt the sales tax to electronic commerce. This webinar is part of GFOA's "Rethinking Revenue" initiative. The goal of this initiative is encourage revenue reforms that better enable local governments to raise the resources needed to provide public services and that raise revenue fairly. Join us on this webinar to be part of this important conversation.
