It’s only been a week since the 1-cent sales tax went off the books, but area economists and businesses do not expect to see much if any increase in retail sales in the foreseeable future due in part to consumers having little idea the increase ended.
In this June 23, 2011 file photo, Jodi Thomas, a sales and leasing consultant at the Big Two Toyota Scion of Chandler car dealership, takes notes on new car arrivals. With the recent expiration of the State of Arizona's temporary one-cent sales tax hike, car sales might be one place customers can save a few dollars.

Homeowners are starting to think about spring cleaning rituals. We organize, shuffle, wash, vacuum and even dust in corners that are normally forgotten or overlooked. We conquer our bathrooms, kitchens, dark closets and are brave enough to look under the bed. What about the furniture?

With some simple, ongoing TLC, you can extend the life of your furniture and stave off the need to buy new furniture. Just make sure you’re doing it correctly and not making things worse.

After reading that the Senate has passed a bill to have online retailers charge sales tax exactly the same as brick and mortar businesses, I am hopeful that Congress will see the impact this will have on their communities. Small businesses have suffered and many have closed because people can save tax dollars by purchasing online. In fact, many people use local retail businesses as testing grounds for whatever they want to buy online. While we all love the idea of getting a deal, it shouldn’t be done on the backs of our local retail businesses. If the same tax is charged online as in person sales, both types of retail would be better served. I hope our Congressmen will realize that when the issue comes to a vote.

I’ve probably done over 65 TV appearances as a legal expert on the case. This case has turned out to be the biggest case of 2013 and maybe as big as the O.J. Simpson case.
AZPASS (Arizona People Acting for a Safer Society) would like to respond to Bill Richardson (“Limiting magazine capacity: Let’s try it!,” AFN, April 28) who seems to want to only confuse the discussion, and to prevent the rest of us from reaching a reasonable consensus on sensible gun regulation.
