Morning Consult – Chaffetz to Introduce E-Commerce Tax Bill This Month
Steve DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice, an e-commerce trade group that includes eBay and Google among its members, said the Chaffetz proposal “lets every state tax administrator reach any business anywhere in the country with an audit or a demand letter.”
He said Goodlatte’s approach would avoid these problems.
“Goodlatte’s proposal treats remote sellers the same as local sellers by allowing them to follow the rules and do filing wherever their store is located,” DelBianco said. “That’s the same process we use when we walk up to the counter to buy anything in a local store.”
