From the ATR website.
The principles stated by Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, make clear that the Marketplace Fairness Act is a non-starter in the House. ATR maintains that there is no need for an Internet Sales tax.
Americans for Tax Reform's Katie McAuliffe said, "Just because Chairman Goodlatte released principles, doesn't mean that it's an endorsement of the Marketplace Fairness Act or remote sales tax collection, as some would have you believe.
"It does not signal any momentum to pass anything. What it does signal is that the Senate rammed though vastly unpopular and misguided legislation without any serious thought or discussion.
"In fact, polling data show that 70 percent of likely voters nationwide are against the idea of any state reaching across its borders into their own to force businesses to collect taxes for states 'abroad.'
"Americans for Tax Reform will continue talking with members about the serious problems remote sales tax collection poses for federalism and audits."
