Internet Taxes Coming Your Way?

Although the Internet Tax Fairness Act of 1998 has been extended twice, in one month it will expire and you’re going to start getting hit with a bunch of federal, state and local taxes unless Congress acts now to prevent it. The law will expire at that time and politicians are just chomping at the bit to steal more money from your wallet to fund their pork barrel projects.

Some politicians want to make the moratorium permanent. In plain English, they want to ‘permanently’ ban Internet access taxation. Others are seeking a compromise that prevents the U.S. government from fleecing you but lets state and local governments levy Internet access taxes. Think of how bad you already get gouged by taxes on your monthly phone bill.

Tell your U.S. Senators and Representative to vote to make the tax moratorium permanent at all levels. Don’t let them weasel out with a compromise vote that lets some taxation start. Once that happens, your tax bill will only get bigger over time.
