It’s looking like it’s not a matter of if, but when there is a federal online sales tax.
A bipartisan group of senators are planning to offer online sales tax legislation as an amendment to a small-business tax credit bill, according to The Hill.
Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) stated that the amendment closely resembles their recently introduced Marketplace Fairness Act.
The Senate is expected to debate and vote on the Small Business Jobs and Tax Relief Act this week.
Amazon, as well as GOP governors, including Chris Christie of New Jersey, Mitch Daniels of Indiana and Rick Snyder of Michigan, have endorsed the bill.
