The US Senate Starts Debating the Internet Sales Tax Next Week

Legislation Attempts to Impose New Internet Sales Tax Burdens on Small Businesses. Call Your Senators Today!
On Tuesday, the Senate agreed to begin debating a small business tax bill (S.2237) that some say could boost job creation. Unfortunately, Senators Mike Enzi (R-WY), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN) have expressed plans to offer an Internet Sales Tax amendment. This amendment would make it much harder for entrepreneurial small business retailers to use the Internet to serve consumers across America, and raise the prices consumers would face when they shop from small businesses online.
If you oppose this Internet Sales Tax scheme that would make it harder for small business retailers to use the Internet and raise prices on consumers, you should contact your Senators and let them know what you think of this scheme.
I encourage all my readers to say NO to the Internet Sales Tax
The best tax policy would encourage entrepreneurial small businesses to use the Internet, create jobs and serves consumers in new and innovative ways. The current Internet Sales Tax proposal is the opposite – a tax proposal that will make it harder for small business retailers to use the Internet and grow.
