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!

No New Taxes. Cut your salaries and pensions instead. Drug test all who receive government subsidies. If you use illegal drugs, no entitlements including social security and welfare.

We do not need more taxes. Period. All this does is create more burdens on the seller and buyer.
