Washington -– Connecticut shoppers who use eBay, Overstock and other online retailers will soon have to pay sales taxes on their purchases if the U.S. House follows the Senate in approving new Internet sales tax legislation.

“It’s long overdue,” said Kevin Sullivan, Connecticut’s commissioner of revenue services. “This clearly will be welcomed revenue.”
