Marketplace Fairness (online taxes)

The Chamber is supporting Marketplace Fairness and Main Street Fairness bills to create a level playing field for local businesses.  


Please contact your state and federal legislators to let them know these bills are important for our local economy and businesses.


 

Pros

Both bills remove a loop-hole that allow online retailers to not collect sales tax, creating an unfair advantage.  


Cons

Some argue that is a new tax.  This is NOT a new tax.  In fact, we are all legally obligated to report our online purchases on our tax returns, but few of us do.  This removes the legal burden from the purchaser and places it on the business.
