The Internet Sales Tax Is Not Just about Taxes

As Black Friday gave way to Cyber Monday, the familiar complaints from physical retailers about the perils of online competition once more began to surface. At issue is the way internet sales, or more specifically remote sales, are taxed, with many retailers calling for new legislation to empower states to collect more taxes from online sellers.

The Internet Should Remain Free of Taxation

On September 30th, Congress approved a measure that would fund the government for the next 10 weeks, until December 11th, while a budget is negotiated for the new fiscal year. The measure contains a reauthorization of the internet taxation ban, which is good news; that is, until the issue is brought up again in December and the government will face another funding battle.

Keep the Internet Tax Free!

Since the early days of the internet, all levels of government have operated under a self-imposed ban on the taxation of internet access. The Internet Tax Freedom Act was first signed into law in 1998, and since then has been repeatedly reauthorized to ensure that Americans have unhampered access to the most powerful tool for information and innovation since the Gutenberg printing press.

Windy City Gets Blown Over With New Tax

A new tax is being imposed on Chicagoans in the name of fairness. Residents who pay to stream movies and music on sites such as Netflix and Spotify will be charged an additional 9% for using those services. The added costs come from a ruling of the Finance Department. Implementing the new charges will be an expansive reach of two types of governing taxes already in place known as the city amusement tax and the city personal property lease transaction tax in order to cover products used by businesses and residents alike.

Internet consumers beware!

The internet has undergone a great deal of change lately, ranging from being subject to new net neutrality regulations that reclassified the internet as a common carrier. It only seems fitting that with all this new, though not necessarily good, change there should be a new tax implemented somewhere.

Net Neutrality Regulations Make Their Debut

At precisely 12:01 am Friday, the new net neutrality regulations took effect after the D.C. Appeals Court declined petitioner’s request for a delay in the case. The day prior, a three-judge panel ruled the petitioners failed to satisfy the stringent requirements for a stay pending review. Had the stay been granted, the new rules would have been put on hold until the broader court battle is settled.

Internet remains tax free, for now...

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 235, better known as the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (PITFA). The pro-consumer legislation received bipartisan support that permanently bans multiple and discriminatory taxes at the state and local levels on internet access services. The House bill was sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and had 188 co-sponsors and 50 senators supporting a similar bill in the Senate.
