Ayotte Vows to Ban Internet Tax Permanently

Official PortraitU.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) announced on Wednesday, she has introduced legislation that would permanently extend the current ban on Internet access taxes. The Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (S. 31) would prevent state and local governments from imposing new taxes on Internet access, and prohibit any multiple or discriminatory taxes on e-commerce.
The Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA), enacted in 1998, was designed to prevent state taxes on Internet access, to ensure that multiple jurisdictions could not tax the same electronic commerce transaction, and to ensure that commerce over the Internet would not be singled out for discriminatory tax treatment. Congress has extended the Internet Tax Freedom Act multiple times, but the current moratorium is scheduled to expire in November 2014
