The survey found that 60 percent of the American public do not believe that Web purchases should be free of taxation.

In fact, researchers found that neither wealth nor political inclination played much of a role in determining where people stood on the issue. They found that 53 percent of all Republican Internet users and 60 percent of respondents with incomes above $100,000 opposed an online tax exemption.
