Calif. Reminds Us to Pay Our Online Sales Tax

Right?  We all pay it if we live in California or other states which, when residents order from online retailers, aren't charged the normal exhorbitant sales tax (8% or more, depending on county, in California).  Sure we do.

One advantage of online shopping is that many Web sites don't charge sales tax in California, making what you buy that much cheaper.

But state officials want to remind shoppers that they still owe taxes on their purchases. Just report and pay what you owe when you file your annual tax returns.

And of course, since it's the honor system, we all pay it right?  Of course we do.  Don't worry, California, we figure soon enough there'll be a online sales tax for all ... unfortunately.
