States’ Internet Tax Scheme Could Lead to a National Sales Tax

The next time you order a sweater from a catalog business in Maine, or a computer online from South Dakota, you might see a little extra surprise on the bill: sales taxes! That’s because state governments want to force businesses nationwide to start collecting sales taxes for them, even if that business has no presence in their state! So, if a small business operating only in, say, Virginia and sells some widgets to someone in Florida, that small business will have to collect and report Florida sales taxes.

Senators Should End Internet Tax Games

On October 21, 2001, the three-year Internet tax moratorium expired with little fanfare and no resolution. As a result, states are now free to impose access taxes and "new and discriminatory" taxes on the Internet, but they still cannot tax remote sales because the Constitution forbids it.

Oregon Governor Kitzhaber Signs into Law SB 660, The Internet Tax Ban of 2001

Salem, OR -- After months of grassroots lobbying by Oregon Citizens for a Sound Economy (OR CSE) and its 9,000 dedicated activists, Governor Kitzhaber finally signed into law SB 660, the Internet Tax Ban of 2001. The original bill, authored by Oregon Citizens for a Sound Economy and sponsored by state Senator Jason Atkinson and Representative Bruce Starr, originally intended to ban all forms of Internet taxes, but the final bill only bans access taxes due to a threat by the governor to veto the bill if sales taxes were included in the bill’s language. OR CSE’s effort to ban Internet taxes cannot be understated, for it was and still is, the only organization to lead the ban against Internet taxes in the state in order to protect Oregon consumers, businesses, and its rural communities.

LETTER TO SENATORS: June 6, 2001 Dear Colleague: Attached are letters of support I have written to the sponsors of two bills that will help ensure that the Internet remains tax free: S. 664, the New Economy Tax Fairness Act (NET FAIR), sponsored by Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH), and S. 777, the Internet Tax Nondiscrimination Act (ITNA), sponsored by Senators George Allen (R- VA) and Conrad Burns (R-MT). These are both important pieces of legislation that I believe deserve your consideration and support. Very sincerely yours, Jack Kemp

Smith wants Internet sales tax-free. Sierra Club calls for higher fuel economy

CONCORD - Senator Bob Smith hopes to make a temporary federal moratorium on Internet sales taxes and related levies permanent, the state branch of Citizens for a Sound Economy said last week. The 1998 Internet Tax Freedom Act now forbids states from taxing electronic commerce. However, that prohibition will only remain in effect through October of this year. On May 21, Sen. Smith introduced legislation in Congress that would make the ban permanent. Citizens for a Sound Economy is a Washington, D.C. -based lobbying group. ----
