U.S. Rep. Sensenbrenner Leads Charge Against Internet Taxes in Wisconsin

FreedomWorks fought hard for S. 150, the Internet Tax Nondiscrimination Act, because it extends the ban on state and local taxes on Internet access and services for the next four years. The bill, which passed Congress last week, covers citizens in every state, but it is especially sweet for Internet users in Wisconsin. That’s because Wisconsin had a special exemption that allows the state and Wisconsin local governments to levy taxes on Internet access. But thanks to Menomonee Falls Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, a provision in S. 150 ends the Wisconsin exemption and will save Wisconsin taxpayers millions of dollars a year.

Saving the Broadband Economy

EXCERPT: "If we do not succeed in making the moratorium permanent for all Internet access users, the more than 150 million Americans who now enjoy Net access at home would be justifiably furious to see new taxes popping up on their bills over the next few months. Slapping all of the taxes from our phone bills on to our Internet bills, making this amazing medium less affordable, would obviously hit American consumers right in the pocketbook."Click here to view the full letter

Tax-free Internet days numbered

BY Michael Gormley

ALBANY, N.Y. — Almost 20 years ago, Harley Duncan and the Kansas tax department he headed set out to encourage people to pay state sales tax on mail-order purchases, required by law but enforced only by a rarely used honor system. "Well, I was out preaching the sermon, and a reporter asked me, 'OK, what do I do if I want to pay the tax?'" Duncan recalled. "And I said, 'Hmm. Good question.' "Well, we didn't have any procedure," he said.

States Have Chance to Tax Internet After Moratorium Expires

BY Kelley Beaucar Vlahos

WASHINGTON — The World Wide Web (search) has been left vulnerable to new levies by states and local governments now free from an Internet tax moratorium (search) Congress failed to renew before adjourning for the year.
