Top Concerns with Rep. Chaffetz’s Online Sales Tax Bill
Legislation should not create problems, it should enable solutions.
But, Representative Chaffetz’s online sales tax bill creates big problems for U.S. consumers, businesses and state governments.
Like most sequels, the new release of the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) is even worse than the original. A bill that claims to focus on collecting more online sales taxes with less burden on small businesses actually accomplishes none of its goals. Small businesses will see a greater percentage of their sales go to the management of a bureaucratic tax collection process and consumers will see up to eight percent of their taxes go to certified software providers – the only true winners in MFA: The Sequel.
