Representatives Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Anna Eshoo (D-CA) introduced the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (H.R. 3086).
You might remember last month the Senate version of this bill was introduced by Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and John Thune (R-SD).
Why this bill is so important:
Nearly every American has the ability to go online these days, whether through their smartphone, tablet, wireless device, or through a landline Internet connection. Internet access is vital to consumers and businesses alike.
Current law prevents Internet access from being taxed for most people, but it’s only temporary. The Internet tax moratorium is set to expire in November 2014, but the new legislative proposals would make it permanent. It also protects you from being taxed multiple times by state and local governments for the same purchase you make over the Internet.
What You Can Do
Encourage your Representative and Senators to keep Internet access tax-free. Tell them you want them to support a permanent extension of the Internet tax moratorium.
This will protect you from having new taxes imposed on your Internet access and ensure Internet commerce will remain unhindered by discriminatory, duplicative taxes.
