The following statement can be attributed to Steve DelBianco, Executive Director of NetChoice.

 

“Rather than repair fatally flawed new Internet tax legislation, Senate supporters are instead seeking to sneak through this new tax by burying it in an important defense bill.”

 

“This eleventh-hour tactic may improve the bill’s chances of passing, but it does nothing to fix its many problems, or make it any less taxing on e-commerce and American consumers.”

 

“The ironically named Marketplace Fairness Act creates unique new tax burdens on e-commerce sellers, unfairly advantaging big box retailers and e-commerce juggernaut Amazon.com. Those established power players will further extend their market dominance while their customers and small Internet retailers will be left holding the bill.”
