Tell Congress: No Internet Sales Tax!

"Online sales tax proposals are taxation without representation. [They tell] businesses that there is no escape from the clutches of tax-hungry politicians. That concept is antithetical to our federalist system, which promotes competition among our states for the best economic policies." – former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint

The internet as a largely tax-free environment may soon be a fact of history. 

Now in the House and Senate, the Remote Transactions Parity Act and the Marketplace Fairness Act would mandate an internet sales tax

We've got to call on our elected servants to oppose this scheme.

Expanding taxes is a bad idea that would adversely affect both consumers and internet retail businesses. Consumers would end up paying higher prices and surrendering more of their dollars to revenue-hungry state governments, while online retailers would be forced to abide by as many as 9,600 tax jurisdictions and navigate all the bureaucratic red tape that goes with them! 

Lawmakers must reject this cash-grabbing effort and refuse to give states power to reach outside of their borders to tax consumers and businesses nationwide. 

Take Action! Sign the petition and send a no-cost message to your U.S. Representative and Senators demanding that they oppose any and all efforts to create an internet sales tax!

I oppose this tax because my home state already has some of the highest taxes in the country. We don't need to be beat to death by more taxes.

I oppose this proposed internet tax because it is taxation by various states without reprsentation, and is unfair to all.

Between taxes and fuel for our homes and cars, no wonder we have to choose between food or meds. It's quite a ride. Too bad some of you folks who are supposed to represent us couldn't take this ride too. I expect you have many more $'s and so for you folks, you don' t have to buy fuel oil 100 gallons at a time. We are taxed enough already.

Governments get enough of our hard earned money. They just don't know how to manage a budget. They give some away to lazy people. They call it EITC when it is an Unearned ITC. "1984" warned us about reverse propaganda meanings. Quit buying votes with government checks!

Taxing the internet, raising expenses on all military retirees, you know people would not mind giving up some and you doing so, but they know the only reason you are forced to do so is all the WASTE, fraud and abuse that continues to be present because a lot of you refuse to do YOUR jobs. Thanks
