argued the tax code gives online businesses a "government-sponsored advantage" It comes as some retailers struggle — Macy’s announced plans to close in Grand Forks and a handful of stores have shuttered in Fargo’s West Acres Mall — and more consumers shop online"Every day the brick-and-mortar stores in our community are required to collect state sales tax while many out-of-state competitors
