Daines Speaks on Internet Sales Tax

Posted: Updated:

Last week Montana Attorney General Tim Fox and several other attorney's general around the country unified in opposition to the Internet sales tax.

Congressman Steve Daines now leading members of the House and Senate and Area Industry Leaders in unified opposition to the so-called "Marketplace Fairness Act."

The legislation is commonly known as the "Internet Tax," which forces businesses conducting online sales to collect sales tax on behalf of more than 9,000 cities and states nationwide.

Daines stated, "We're here today because this bill would fundamentally change how online purchases are taxed and would impose yet another burden on small businesses across the country.  Let me be clear. The so-called Marketplace Fairness Act is a job-killing tax hike that hurts American small businesses and hurts American consumers.  And I promise that I, with the help of all of my colleagues here today, will remain committed and united in the fight against this legislation."

Daines also noting the possible harms that the legislation would bring to small businesses across the United States, both in states with sales tax, as well as those without.

Montana is one of only five states without a state sales tax.
