Say NO to the Internet Sales Tax

We at strongly encourage you to oppose efforts to include H.R. 2193, the Remote Transaction Parity Act (RTPA), in the Fiscal Year 2018 Omnibus spending legislation. This unfair and damaging proposal would require Internet marketplaces to charge sales tax on out-of-state purchases, which have always been sales tax free.

Under this proposal, items sold to buyers from small, out-of-state companies, artisans, and even average consumers over the Internet will be taxed. This harmful legislation lacks any exemption for small businesses that use marketplace tools – forcing these small businesses to meet costly and resource constraining compliance and audit requirements in states where they do not even have a presence.

Opposing the internet sales tax is easy – just click here, complete the simple form, and a letter will be sent to your members of Congress on your behalf. It takes less than 60 seconds.

Thank you in advance for your support!

  1. We recently alerted you that some members of Congress were trying to jam harmful Internet sales tax legislation into a large, must-pass spending bill. Thousands of Main Street Members just like you responded and sent almost 85,000 letters asking your legislators to protect small business – and it worked! Congress heard you and chose not to include unfair sales tax legislation in the spending bill. We would like to offer you our heartfelt thanks for taking action on behalf of all US Internet-enabled small businesses.

    The battle now moves to the Supreme Court and we hope to have some resolution to this issue over the summer. We will continue to monitor the situation and will let you know if there is further opportunity for you to join the fight.

    Again, thank you for your participation!
