One Less Tax To Worry About

There is one less tax that startups and small businesses don't have to worry about in the coming years. 

In the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 Congress will make permanent the ban on certain Internet taxes.  The language is buried in Title IX, Sec. 922 of the Act which amends the 1998 law called the Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA). The ITFA prohibited states and localities from levying access taxes, as well as taxes on Internet traffic.  The change in the new law provides for a permanent moratorium on Internet access taxes and on multiple and discriminatory taxes on electronic commerce.

However it does not ban sales taxes on e-commerce sales, nor does it prevent federal, state and local governments from imposing fees on your Internet service. There are separate legislative fight occurring in Congress on those fronts.

The Internet Tas Freedom Act Coalition supports the remove to permanently remove these taxes and believes that it will benefit Aermica’s consumers and innovators and ultimately lead to higher economic growth and job creation.
