Why the online sales tax may die in the House
Posted by Staff
The Daily Caller reports:

The online sales tax bill will face an uphill battle in the Republican-dominated House of Representatives, despite broad bipartisan support in the Senate.

The Marketplace Fairness Act, which will allow states the authority to collect sales taxes from online retailers outside of their state, is scheduled for a vote in the Senate in early May and is expected to pass. The fast tracking that it experienced in the Senate, however, is unlikely to be replicated in the House.

So far, Republican leadership has shown little interest in championing the issue of online sales taxation. Facebook Fark Furl
