Permanent Internet Access Tax Ban a Victory for Internet Freedom

Following the addition of language to the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act that permanently extends the existing ban on taxation of Internet access, FreedomWorks Legislative Affairs Manager Josh Withrow commented:

“Finally. This language would have passed last year if supporters of the complicated and misguided Internet sales tax hadn’t tried to add their bill to the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act. The Internet is a transformative platform that is vital to our economy, and it’s still developing. Ensuring that access to the Internet is not taxed would be a rare victory for Internet freedom.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
