The Arizona Retailers Association is gearing up to mount a public-relations campaign to garner support for requiring online retailers to collect state sales tax.

The Arizona Capitol Times (http://bit.ly/Mguy6I) reports that the aim of the association's campaign would be to increase pressure on legislators to force online retailers to collect sales tax.

Arizonans are already supposed to pay tax on online purchases but few do.

The issue is the association's top priority but Executive Director Michelle Ahlmer says the group won't begin the campaign until after a task force appointed by Gov. Jan Brewer holds its first meeting later this month.

The task force is to consider various sales tax issues but those are expected to include collection of tax on online purchases.
