    Online retailers pressed to collect sales taxes

    Alan Lavine made a point of telling me that he’s no fan of taxes.

    Lavine, along with his father and brother, operate a store called Percy’s in Worcester — a family business that dates back to the 1920s. They sell pretty much everything in your home, from appliances to electronics to furniture and beds. The 6.25 percent Massachusetts sales tax adds up on some of those bigger-ticket items.
