& # 39; I believe that Amazon has destroyed the box storage. What if the box stores go down, restaurants go down, the cinemas go down, the gas stations go down.

& # 39; You become ghost towns and to solve that, I think you should tax the internet.

& # 39; I think you should raise a tax there and level the playing field, & # 39; Lindell said.

He added: & # 39; These checkout shops, they pay rent, they pay tax, they levy sales tax. & # 39;

& # 39; And … I would be taxed. You know, you start here … and Amazon was initially built on no sales tax, but we all had to pay sales tax on your honor at that time. You are still that, & he said.

& # 39; If you buy something on the internet and they have not collected any taxes, you have to pay it – but nobody knows. So there are trillions of dollars that have never been collected. & # 39;

& # 39; We already tax it in a certain way. They have changed the rules, Amazon is now taxing third-party sales. & # 39;

Asman further said that an internet tax & # 39; would feed the beast & # 39; and would give the federal government more money.

American strategy group director Joel Farkas weighed in the debate and said: “I don't like monopolies and Amazon is becoming a monopoly.

& # 39; I don't like how they treat emerging companies and entrepreneurs who have a product on their platform that is all, a platform, and then decimate them with fraud from other countries or by taking over their ideas. & # 39 ;

Farkas further emphasized the importance of shopping centers and said: “It's the ability of people to have a place where they can see things, touch things, experience things.

& # 39; What we also know in retail is that if you have a physical store, your online sales go up.

& # 39; If you have an online sale and you have a physical store, the sales in the physical store go up.
