UAB Research Fuels Push for Collecting Online Sales Tax

A study authored by UAB Business Professor Bob Robicheaux shows that Alabama lost over $160M last year in uncollected sales tax from online purchases, and that number is expected to grow substantially each year unless new legislation prevents it. Governor Robert Bentley joined a panel discussion at Alabama Retail Day to address this growing concern.
