Support the Marketplace Fairness Act

Support the Marketplace Fairness Act

The U.S. Senate will be voting on legislation that will level the playing field for ALL retailers. The bi-partisan Marketplace Fairness Act will treat all transactions – whether online or in the store – equally and put money into state treasuries to invest in essential projects like infrastructure.

Tell your Senators to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act.
Exempting online retailers from having to collect sales tax gives these companies the sizable competitive advantage in retailing of a 4 to 9 percent price over local stores. And it undermines state and local governments by reducing tax revenue for infrastructure development, schools, police, and other services — investments needed to strengthen our economy.
Passing the Marketplace Fairness Act allows states to enforce their existing laws. Provisions in the bill ensure minimal burden for online retailers to comply. And today’s technology puts to rest the excuses that it’s too hard to collect multi-state taxes.

Tell your Senators to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act.
Thank you for taking action today!
