The payroll and income taxes collected on the jobs and business activity that the RI sales tax policy creates/retains, probably dwarf the potential sales tax. And the taxpayers have jobs! Not to mention the sales taxes on everything else that is spent by the out of state crowd here. I presume NH was doing the same math in keeping those stores open that are selling to Mass residents. Lose those jobs and your property taxes go up too, as you stop collecting both payroll and corporate income taxes on that activity and now have to pay unemployment and social welfare benefits.

Keep people employed and spending money. It's not that complicated.
