Virginia forcing businesses to pay sales tax before collecting them

From The Richmond Examiner:

In a letter mailed to select businesses this week, the Virginia Department of Taxation is notifying them that the budget passed by the 2010 Virginia General Assembly has New Tax Payment Requirements for these businesses. In order to close the nearly $4 billion Virginia deficit, former governor Tim Kaine’s budget will require businesses to pay up early. The state’s fiscal year ends on June 30 each year. Ordinarily, taxes on sales completed in June are not due until July 20th. This year, June taxes are due June 30th, and will be included in the state’s books for fiscal year ending June 30, 2010. The rate is calculated at 90% of sales for June, 2009.

Essentially, Kaine’s budget took a month’s worth of sales tax income from the next fiscal year, leaving Virginian’s with one 13 month year and one 11 month year, income wise.

The penalty for failing to pay on time is 6%.

    Pay for our lack of fiscal responsibility. Somehow this reminds me of Knights going out and stealing from peasants.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
