The so called "Money Saver" on Bowens Mill Hwy. has been charging me 4 cents extra for a local copy of our newspaper for years now. I thought it was ok until I started going other places and yet have found another place to charge me the tax.

Why are you shopping at a foreign owned and operated convenience store anyway. Shop USA. Fosters is just around the corner, American owned, American operated and no smell to boot!

SUPPORT LOCAL AMERICAN OWNED AND OPERATED BUSINESS.

It should be legal for them to charge tax on ANYTHING because they are not required to PAY TAX on anything.That means ANYTHING,Income Tax, Property Tax, Sales Tax. The only tax they pay is when you see them at the Groc. Store and Dollar stores buying $hit to put in there stores to re-sale to you at a very high mark up. Did you know that ? Stop supporting them, Please.

I thought I was only supporting our community by buying only a 50 cent plus 4 cent tax newspaper. So your saying that the indian owned conv. store recieves a cut out of the original fifty cents charged for the paper?

I stopped purchasing anything from them, (other than newapapers a long time ago.) 1.They are indians. 2. They charge an outrageous fee for use of my debit card (which was going to be my next topic) 3. They stink.4. They dont like for you to use their stinking bathroom. 5. They watch you like your gonna steal something of theirs. 6. They think that they are better than you. I could keep going, but I'll stop there.

Newspapers are not listed as sales tax exempt on the Dept of Revenue site. Just taking a quick look the ones sold out of machine may be since they may have to have a permit for the machines, but I don't know that for sure. I would have to dig a little deeper.

You're a racist piece of shit lol. Its the 21st century you prick. You're probably mad that immigrants were able to start up a business while you're still praying to win the lottery while scratching your ass playing online poker haha.

Just asking...
But why do almost everytime I go in an Indian owned store and purchase something, they never ring what I purchase up?
They all usually just open the drawer from the bottom and give me change back, without ringing it up...
Is it to avoid paying taxes?
And by not ringing purchases up they can say they sold less if they are audited, because the purchases will not be recorded on the tape?
Somebody needs to check into this, because ALL Indian owned stores do it.

They should not be charging you tax on the newspaper. They do earn a portion of the papers they sale.

Newspapers are taxed anywhere you buy them just like other taxable items. Foreigners own property because the properties were available & convenient stores & hotels are the line of business Indians happen to invest in. The same tax rules apply as far as sales tax. They have no more tax break on their business capital than a female owned business. Off they, just like anyone else, run a business without collecting & paying sales & use tax, then they run the same risk of being caught as anyone else. If anyone, Indian or otherwise, can stay in business without paying sales tax, then that is the fault of local & state government. If you just don't want to shop with Indians, then shop elseehere, otherwise, you're just being an ignorant, narrow minded racist. Get educated.

SOMEBODY had to say it! I don't understand why these morons believe that a business owner doesn't pay taxes. Actually, I do understand... because they're idiots & the only way they can convince anyone of anything is to lie & try to piss people off. Thank you for coming through with some common sense at the end.
