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!

There is very little the people are not taxed on. And yet the greedy , inefficient politicians still make claims of not enough money. Politicians need to learn just like the rest of us have had to learn to do with what you currently have. You CANNOT ask for more. We simply do not have it. Stay within your means.

An internet sales tax would be devastating to Montana small business as they currently have no means to monitor such taxes. Also, the federal government has no power to administer, investigate or collect state taxes. This whole issue is a non-starter. Please stop it NOW!

Why is it when something is voted down, a few months later it is brought up to vote on again. There are so many other things that never get voted on, why beat a dead horse. No one wants to have this tax. It would put such a burden on the businesses to get the the sites up and running with technology to collect this tax that many would be put out of business. But what I really think is that may be what you all want to happen in the first place. To kill the economy even more.I pray that it is voted down again and again and again till you get the message, it is not wanted or needed.

Politicians: IT'S NOT YOUR MONEY! You don't get to take a bit every time we use it. It's our money and you get too much already. States must not be allowed to reach beyond their borders into peoples' pockets!!
