Should Online Businesses Be Taxed?
As to whether online businesses should be taxed，there is a long-running concern as well as controversial debate.
Some people contend that online businesses are economic entities with the purpose of making profits, so it’s reasonable and obligatory for them to pay taxes. Taxing online businesses also demonstrates fairness to both physical retail businesses and their online counterparts. What’s more, they will benefit from it in the long run.But others disapprove of the practice. They hold the view that despite the high e-commerce transaction volume, online businesses do not have a very high profit margin. Taxation may force many online businesses to quit because they cannot make money any longer. Besides, if online businesses are taxed, the increasing costs are likely to be shifted to consumers which is unfavorable for their healthy development.
As for my personal viewpoint, I support the former opinion. Now that online businesses are commercial activities, they have no excuse to be exempted from taxation. Furthermore, the tax-free model surely brings some benefits to online businesses in the short term, but it will become a great obstacle for the far-reaching development of the whole trade.
