US House Judiciary Committee Passes the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act
Recently the US House Judiciary Committee voted to approve legislation to permanently extend the moratorium on taxation of internet access.
The bill, titled the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, would make permanent the current internet tax moratorium that prevents states and localities from levying taxes on access to the internet. It would also eliminate a grandfather clause that currently allows seven states to tax internet access.
The Internet Tax Freedom Act was first passed in 1998 and has been extended three times, in 2001, 2004, and 2007.
