Perdue: College gear sales-tax disparity 'makes no sense'

Customers who walk into a retail store to buy fan merchandise have to pay sales tax. But if they buy from the official college website, they don’t have to pay sales tax if the online vendor is out of state. “My reaction is one of surprise," Governor Bev Perdue said. "It makes no sense. If we're going to collect sales tax in our traditional retail outlets, I believe virtual sales tax is incumbent upon all of us.” (WRAL.com)
