Read their lips: No online taxes

Published on .

The imposition of taxes on online purchases would mean a slowdown in the online purchasing behavior of 66% of consumers surveyed by Active Research, a Web-based market researcher. The survey, completed earlier this month, asked 539 individuals about their attitudes toward government-imposed Internet taxes. The survey also found that significantly more women (71%) than men (64%) said they would decrease their online shopping, a finding that is consistent with women's price-sensitivity.
