VICTORY: Internet Tax Vote Delayed!
By Jim Babka

The so-called Marketplace Fairness Act never got a committee hearing and markup. The intent was to rush it through because opposition has always been too strong.

But you caught the Senate. A bipartisan group of Senators, from intervening states that don’t have a sales tax, used a procedural tactic to stall. Time is our ally. But the rumor is that a vote could come as soon as May 6.

As of now, the so-called “Marketplace Fairness Act” has the votes to pass. We believe we need to peel off as many as 25 supporting Senators. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to use’s Educate the Powerful SystemSM to send a letter. Yesterday, we provided a sample letter with ten reasons you must deny your consent to this Internet sales tax.
