Online sales tax bill may be dead on arrival in House
Could be some good news on this for now.
Check it out:
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.
