It’s Time To Level The Playing Field & Support California’s Small Businesses

With our state struggling with one of the highest unemployment rates in
the nation, we need our elected officials to support our small
businesses. They are the backbone of our economy.

Unfortunately, right now, small businesses in our state are fighting an
unfair set of rules that give a huge advantage to out-of-state,
online-only retailers.

Here is the problem: small businesses in our state are required to
collect state sales taxes at the point of purchase. But an
out-of-state, online-only retailer that sells the same product does not
have to collect this tax – essentially giving them a competitive
advantage over California businesses that provide jobs and revenue for
important services.
