One thought on “Etsy Asks Sellers to Sign Petition on European Digital Service Taxes”

  1. “Although intended to target digital giants, small businesses often bear the costs of DSTs, either in the form of higher fees or reduced investments, like marketing, that a platform can make in local communities.”

    Then let the giants pay for something for once without burdening the businesses.
    Another fee grab to fatten their bottom line.

    Last time anyone supported an argument against tax for big tech, the executives ran away when they lost, and decided to profit from the decision leaving sellers to pay the bill.

    This is a hollow request by corporate to make it look like they are on our side when in fact they cant wait to abuse another policy for more money.

    Their idea of ‘partnership’ is more like an agreement with government to milk more money by making another “law” so they can hide behind stealing it.

    After all of the broken trust to the people who built these sites by becoming sellers, if corporate goes bankrupt because of their evil and selfish decisions, so be it. Many businesses have been closed and leveled in their wake, and in my opinion, corporate going bankrupt still wont be considered as rectified.

    Now all of the employees and management can still do nothing without getting excessively overpaid for it.
