On-line commerce has revolutionized small business by allowing a bricks-and-mortar store anywhere to operate everywhere. Consumers across America are benefiting from having more product choices, greater availability, and competitive pricing. Small on-line retail businesses in thousands of U.S. communities are growing and creating jobs in their hometowns.
But current proposed Internet sales tax legislation threatens to kill the growth and job creation potential of small on-line retailers.
This legislation would compel retailers to calculate, collect, and turn over sales taxes from and to every geographical jurisdiction (city, county, state) in which their on-line customers reside.
All in the name of "fairness"--just like the IRS!
