State to audit K-State’s online sports sales


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)   The state of Kansas plans to audit the K-State athletic department’s online sales of its athletic merchandise.  The Lawrence Journal-World reported Monday that the audit will determine if the school is not collecting sales tax on merchandise sold through its online store.  Kenny Lannou, a spokesman for the athletic department, says the department believes the orders don’t have to be taxed because they are filled by a Florida online company that has no employees or offices in Kansas.  But Richard Cram, of the revenue department, notes that the store is called the “K-State Official Online Store” and it is accessed through the school’s athletic department website.  He says the state doesn’t care where the product comes from.
