POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Tax Commission employees have told a 12-year-old boy selling raspberries in eastern Idaho he needs to collect 6 percent sales tax. State Tax Commission policy specialist Saul Cohen says the commission’s mission is to advance fairness in collection and is why tax collectors made contact with Tayson Weeks at his stand in Pocatello earlier this summer. The youngster’s father, Jason Weeks, tells the Idaho State Journal that it was Tayson’s second day in business. Jason Weeks says the Tax Commission gave Tayson an Oct. 15 deadline to collect the tax and send the proceeds to the state of Idaho. Jason Weeks says his son wants a motorcycle, but that he’ll have to pay for it himself. So he opened the raspberry stand.
