Sales Taxes on the Net Eyed by Congress

BY David Clarke

WASHINGTON -- With the moratorium on Internet sales taxes ending in October, Congress is once again trying to resolve how state sales taxes should be assessed on products bought online. Three pieces of legislation proposed in the Senate propose two approaches to interstate sales via the Internet: A new uniform system for states to use in assessing sales tax on goods bought through the Internet, and a ban on sales taxes except when the customer and the company are in the same state.

Issue Analysis 116 - Oregon Plan Can Reignite the Flame of Internet Tax Freedom

At the time of writing, 16 states are considering legislation to enlist in a “cooperating sovereignty” arrangement to force out-of-state businesses to collect their taxes. Two versions of the legislation exist: one proposed by the original cartel, the “Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Project,” (SSTP) and a slightly different version proposed by the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL).

Click here to sign CSE's No Internet Tax Petition Ten years ago, discount retailers like Wal-Mart were redefining the face of the American retail industry. Today, online retailers like Amazon.com are again redefining not only ways that businesses interact with their customers, but also how they interact with each other. Two years ago, Congress passed a three-year moratorium on new Internet taxes to help the fledgling market grow. In the interim, the battle to create an Internet tax plan has begun.
