(Adam Radman, Americans for Tax Reform) – The Internet is a politician’s playground for new taxes. Lawmakers are always looking for ways to tax people who can’t vote against them. Enter the Remote Transactions Parity Act, introduced by Rep. Jason Chaffetz.
It’s a new Internet sales tax scheme that takes advantage of the taxpayer. There should be more bills that protect taxpayers, not prey on them.
New York and California already shakedown residents of other states for income tax, even if they only worked in the state for just a few days. New Jersey even held an 18-wheeler hostage for taxes because it drove through the state – no deliveries, just passing through.
If you plan on selling anything online through eBay, Amazon, or another platform, this legislation would force you to deal with 45 different state sales taxes and over 10,000 local tax jurisdictions – that’s like dealing with another 10,000 IRSs! Any state can make a claim against you and drag you into their courts.
