The problem is that each state (and some counties within the states) will have their own sales tax rate, each set up by their local governing body. The Tax collected is designed to go back into the state that charges for the tax. It is illegal for one state to collect another states sales tax - or take tax earnings out of one community and use it for another. It is also illegal for a state to charge sales tax on anyone who will not be able to benefit from that tax - meaning that a business cannot collect sales tax from somebody that is not living (or not able) to benefit from that tax.

So, if they were to impose taxation on sales done over state lines.....it brings up another entire rats nest of problems. First, who would be responsible to enforce the collection of the tax? Would the state that the item was sold to be responsible to go back to the other state that sold the items and enforce the collection of the tax? How would the State know that the items were even sold and shipped there in the first place? Does the State that the business is in need to go into those business's and see that they are charging and collecting the taxes for all the other states? And if they are charging and collecting, are they paying it back to the other communities and where?

That's a ton and a half of work that would be dumped onto every tax service as some items are tax free for some states where others charge. The tax commission would have to evaluate every single sale into every single state to see that the item was taxable in the first place, then check to see that the item was taxed at the right rate, then have to go into the business's banking and financial records to see that the tax was paid to the state.....good luck on that one! Especially when some business's will ship thousands of products all over the U.S. every single day.

So, until the government figures out how, we can at least enjoy this one small loophole that works in our favor - probably the only thing we are not (directly) taxed for at this time. :)

you can also contact BUD TAYLOR at THE KITE GUYS
he s in ardrie alberta , has been in biz for twenty plus years and knows his kites
for all your info the inter activite games in victoria sells some two line kites and some parts and pieces For those but appears not to be rev friendly :big_blowup: he pushes the 2 liners and feed back from interested people we have sent there in the past has been negative..... just our opinion though :devil:

there is also theresa at the kite shoppe in vancouver washington , another person who reallys knows her products
also sally at kites and puppets in vancouver b.c. .. not alot of flying info.but she has rev kites and parts and pieces

perhaps someone on the forum in canada has a extra 3 wrap ( ultralight) rod they could make availabe ... shipping would be cheap
