Most people have no clue how much the government takes in taxes from us every day. Income tax, property tax, sales tax, gas tax and tons of hidden fees. And much is tax on money you’ve already been taxed on. AND, they also tax your employer on what they pay you that gets taxed anyway. That’s money that could go towards your bonus or raise. It’s nothing short of criminal.
Some of these Etsy shops are so small, for them to send IL $.06 on every dollar is ridiculous. They don’t have the infrastructure to handle state taxes and will go out of business. So much for supporting small businesses.
