Marketplace Fairness Act and the Grey Market

The Marketplace Fairness Act would subject retailers to sales tax audits from 50 different states and tax laws of nearly 10,000 local tax authorities. Proponents of this bill claim that this levels the playing field between internet merchants, such as Ebay or Amazon with brick and mortar retailers like Walmart or Best Buy. Critics point out that it only boosts the tax bill for America’s consumers and allows state governments to tax businesses not within their jurisdiction.

This puts a twist on the way Americans view news outlets.

Stop the Internet Sales Tax

Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) are expected to introduce a bipartisan bill aimed at increasing your taxes by taxing purchases you make on the internet.  The bill’s name is deceitfully titled the Main Street Fairness Act of 2011 – it is neither main street nor fair. The bill seeks to hurt online retailers and consumers alike, and will suppress internet entrepreneurship and your wallet.
