I found it interesting that a recent letter to the Tribune, “Congress Needs to Close Tax Loopholes” talked nothing about the legislation before Congress that would close the sales tax loophole online retail companies currently use to not pay their fair share. Last year, this issue popped up in the Arizona legislature, and the Governor ended up reaching a deal with Amazon.com to pay their fair share. This year, it is popping up in Congress, and our East Valley congressman (Schweikert and Salmon) need to step up and show the same leadership. Small retail businesses are too critical to our communities to ignore this inequality. Ask any store owner in Old Town Scottsdale, or downtown Mesa, Chandler, or Gilbert, and they will all tell you that it’s an extreme disadvantage for them to try and compete with online retailers when they can undercut your price by as much as 10 percent. So yes — let’s close the tax loopholes, and start with this one.

But many in Ahwatukee Foothills — on paper a part of the City of Phoenix, but ostensibly it’s own community of nearly 80,000 residents neighboring Tempe and Chandler — are also fearful of the state removing homes, businesses and a church to build the new freeway.
