CLEARWATER — The world’s freest marketplace is set to become the next playground for Florida’s tax collectors.

Come 2013, the Sunshine State could find itself with an Internet sales tax, thanks to a bill put forward by state Sen. Gwen Margolis, D-Miami, on Monday.

Margolis did not return calls to Florida Watchdog, but she told Jacksonville News 4 that the idea of the tax rests on imposing fairness for Florida’s businesses.
