The state of Michigan wants online shoppers to save their sales receipts.
They may need them at tax time.
The growth of online sales has meant a bigger loss of sales tax revenue in Michigan.
The state expects to lose $440 million in unpaid sales tax on remote sales, mainly online.
“Oftentimes people think that this is a new tax. It certainly isn’t,” says Treasury Department spokesman Terry Stanton. “It’s been on the state’s books since 1930s.”
