Community-based retailers have waited for more than two decades for Congress to take action and close the online sales tax loophole. E-fairness legislation is critical to leveling the playing field for our local retailers and reinforcing our local sales tax base to support our schools, infrastructure and first responders.
Specifically, we need legislation that provides parity when a purchase is made. A consumer should be able to clearly understand what their tax obligation is when they make a purchase and that consumer’s obligation should be the same tax rate regardless of if the purchase is made at a local store, on a mobile device or from a computer.
Make sure Congress knows that we want a fair chance to compete and that you expect E-fairness NOW!
