Internet Retailer – Lawmakers queue up a simplified online sales tax bill
“The elegant simplicity of this approach for analog and online sellers is that they will now treat all their customers as if they strode up to the front door and made a purchase,” says Steve DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice. The only difference would be that the e-retailer charges the shopper tax at the single rate determined by the consumer’s home state. NetChoice is a group that represents e-retailers and has actively participated in developing the bill’s key points.
DelBianco says terms of the draft bill are “so simple there is no need for an exemption” for smaller sellers.
