Many science fiction adventures have posited the idea of a parallel universe, but to my knowledge, we have not found intelligent life out there yet.Readers don’t fret. If you had your heart set on discovering a parallel universe, just take the lead of state government. Go out and create your own.
The parallel universe created by the states is known as the Use Tax.The Use Tax is a virtual mirror to the Sales Tax. It is imposed on the user of goods and services that would be subject to the Sales Tax, but for the fact that the seller or service provider didn’t charge and collect the Sales Tax.
For that new 90-inch TV you just purchased from www.wedon’tchargesalestax.com, your State is looking for you to voluntarily compute the amount that would have been charged as Sales Tax and submit it as Use Tax. Despite the mistaken belief that internet sales aren’t subject to tax, your State expects you to be a good citizen and hand over what you believed to be your savings.
