Kill Internet Taxation:

This week, the Senate may take up S 150, the permanent Internet tax moratorium, which has already passed the House. Anti-tax activists hope the Senate will pass the bill sponsored by Sen. Ron Wyden (D.-Ore.) and Sen. George Allen (R.-Va.) — which is identical to the House version — and not a weaker alternative from Sen. Lamar Alexander (R.-Tenn.). “If S 150 reaches the floor, it will pass,” David McClure, president of the U.S. Internet Industry Association, told HUMAN EVENTS last week. “It’s permanent. This is about taxes on your Internet access and services.” The bill will prevent the federal government and states from imposing taxes that hit the Internet and also transactions conducted over the Internet — unless they also apply to similar transactions conducted offline.
