Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Sales tax right at the register for some online purchases the retailer may not be tacking on the tax if you bucks online. Yeah. That if an item is taxable of you still owe Rhode Island money. You can pay when you submit your personal income tax using schedule you or you can fill out the t two five four year over year. We've seen increases in the number of people that have paid on their personal income tax and on the T two. Oh, five compliances improving, but it's not one hundred percent. So we asked what happens if people don't pay the sales tax, they owe from online purchases depending on how big ticket item. It is saved might come up in an audit. It might come up in other ways, but we strive to enforce. We certainly can't enforce everything. We simply don't have the staff for that next tax season. There may be less for consumers to keep track of last week Governor Gina Raimondo sign legislation to collect sales tax from online retailers. The new law stems from a recent supreme court decision making it easier for states to collect sales tax from online retailers who don't have a physical presence in the state now. Online retailers have to pay the tax that mainstream was always paying. I do think there is significant revenue that will be collected as a result of this effort so far this tax season. Rhode Island tax payers have received about one hundred sixty two million dollars in refunds that's up about six percent compared with the same time last year Susan Campbell.

That's a lot of section there. Westerly sun reports the driver has been identified as nineteen year old Shaquille Edwin Lewis of Hartford who was arraigned on charges in Washington county district court yesterday. I don't know if he's some kind of a Taylor swift fan or it just happened to wind up at the gates of her home. But he's a brilliant. And we'll put him in our right folder for that. The name of the historic providence hotel, the Biltmore now part of the city skyline, and it's changing Chicago-based AJ capital partners. That's the group which owns the Biltmore. Now, they put up a new sign on the ground level of the property on Tuesday to reflect the new name, which is graduate hotel trying to get used to that you know, that big light. They're the red light built more on top of the roof. Well, that's legal in historic landmark. So that can't be touched that stays up according to hotel officials so the Biltmore in providence now called the graduate hotel. Good luck with that the way we handle changed here in the ocean state. You know, we're still trying to get over the mass being changed from Latin to English. It's twenty minutes after seven o'clock and take a left at were L max used to be let's hit the traffic center..
