Vanderbilt poll: Tennesseans oppose online tax
May 21, 2013 17:59 GMT

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new Vanderbilt University poll finds a majority of Tennesseans oppose the state enforcing online sales taxes, though respondents were split on whether the current system is fair to local businesses.
Fifty-five percent said that taxing online sales is a bad idea, while 38 percent said it would be good policy.
The U.S. Senate earlier this month passed a bill to empower states to collect sales taxes from Internet purchases, but the measure faces a tough sell in the House. The change is supported by Gov. Bill Haslam and fellow Republican U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker.
But Haslam enjoys a 63 percent approval rating among the 813 registered voters surveyed in the poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
