As one of our over 6.9 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, H.R. 235, sponsored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte and cosponsored by more than 180 Representatives from both parties.
Back in 1998, Congress passed the original Internet Tax Freedom Act, a temporary moratorium on taxing internet access. Since then, the Act has been renewed, but is now set to expire on November 1. If Congress does nothing, states could start taxing your internet access by the end of the year.
The Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act does more than just extend the deadline, it makes the tax moratorium permanent.
FreedomWorks recognizes the transformative power of the internet to facilitate commerce and the free flow of information. Permitting taxation of the internet unjustly and discriminatorily burdens internet businesses and allows government new power to restrict the freedom of information. The Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act will ensure that this will never happen.
Please contact your representative and ask that he or she vote YES on the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act. FreedomWorks will count any vote on this bill as a Key Vote when calculating our Economic Freedom Scorecard for 2015. The scorecard is used to determine eligibility for the FreedomFighter Award, which recognizes Members of Congress who consistently vote to support economic freedom.
President and Founder,
