Description

A WNEP-TV investigation reveals that "people are paying sales tax on items which are nontaxable in Pennsylvania." The reporter finds that "mistakes were being made by clerks and even computers." The story cites state officials admitting "they simply don't have the personnel to insure that businesses are following the rules" and that "170 thousand businesses will never be audited."
