NetChoice Calls for Alternative to MFA

 

Today we offered an alternative called Home Rule and Revenue Return. It would treat all businesses the same, whether brick-and-mortar, catalog, or online, subjecting each to the  rates,rules, and audits in only the states where they are located. Our alternative returns taxes on remote sales to the state where purchasers reside, and it meets all of the Committee principles.

 

“NetChoice’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee demonstrates there are more efficient and fair solutions for collecting remote sales taxes than the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA). Today we offered an alternative called Home Rule and Revenue Return. It would treat all businesses the same, whether brick-and-mortar, catalog, or online, subjecting each to the rates, rules, and audits in only the states where they are located. Our alternative returns taxes on remote sales to the state where purchasers reside, and it meets all of the Committee principles.”

 

“The MFA will be expensive and onerous to implement and expose businesses to unprecedented audit risks. Chairman Goodlatte and members of the committee understand that covering up the fundamental flaws of the MFA with promises of cheap and easy software solutions is a false choice.”
