Congress Should Consider Small Business Exception to Internet Sales Tax

BY Jason Pye

To the great disappointment of many small business owners and supporters of federalism, the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Wayfair vs. South Dakota opened the door for states to impose an internet sales tax, even on businesses that have no physical presence in their borders. Because Congress has the constitutional authority to regulate interstate commerce, it is now considering ways to address this newfound taxing authority. Congress must take this opportunity to use its power to protect small businesses from these taxes and perhaps to at least work to slow the process down while a long term solution is explored. The strength of the American economy depends on it.

Republicans May Allow States to Tax Consumers for Internet Purchases

The House is expected to vote on an omnibus spending bill next week. There are several riders that could be attached to the bill that will frustrate those of us who believe in limited government. The ObamaCare bailout is one piece that could be added, thanks to Senate HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-Wash.), and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.). But another rider that could be added is the Internet sales tax, which conservatives have successfully killed in the past.

Coalition Letter Against Internet Sales Tax in a Lame Duck

FreedomWorks -- along with Americans for Prosperity, Heritage Action for America, and Americans for tax Reform -- released a coalition letter opposing a vote on the Internet sales tax during the lame-duck session of Congress. The issue is contentious, and pushing through a bill in the lame duck would allow little time for debate or discussion of these complicated issues and therefore decrease the level of accountability for the members.

Procedural Hurdle Threatens to Derail Internet Tax Freedom

This week, the Senate is poised to vote on a permanent extension of the Internet Tax Freedom Act. The Act, first enacted as a temporary measure in 1998, prohibits states and localities from taxing access to the internet, and has traditionally been extended a year at a time as part of budget negotiations.

FreedomWorks’ Digital Bill of Rights

As more and more of our activities move online and the internet plays an integral role in our day to day lives, it must be remembered that the rights we enjoy as American citizens do not stop at technology’s doorstep. It is important, therefore, to ensure that the protections established in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights serve Americans in the digital world just as effectively as they do in the real world. With this in mind, we therefore propose a Digital Bill of Rights:

A Permanent Internet Tax Ban at Last

In the mad rush of trying to pass as much terrible legislation as possible before the holiday deadline, Congress is actually doing one thing worth praising. A permanent extension of the Internet Tax Freedom Act is being included in the conference report for a bill aimed at modernizing the U.S. customs system. The bill is expected to pass by the end of the year, and the included measure would make permanent the ban on states and localities taxing access to the internet, a ban that has existed since 1998 and which has had to be repeatedly renewed since that time.
