Trying to Keep The Internet Tax-Free
Senator Steve Daines just signed an amicus brief for Amici Curiae South Dakota v. Wayfair case. Daines is urging the United States Supreme Court to rule against allowing states to implement an internet sales tax. The Montana senator claims letting states add sales tax to the internet would harm small businesses and consumers.
“The Internet sales tax is a misguided policy that would raise costs for consumers and harm small businesses that are trying to break into new markets and create jobs,” said Daines.
Some are saying it is not fair to local brick and morter stores who are subject to tax laws.
