Online Sales Tax Bill Introduced in Congress
Following the enactment by several states this year of online sales taxes, a bill has been introduced to establish one at the federal level.
The bipartisan bill, introduced in the House of Representatives by Reps. Steve Womack, R-Ark., and Jackie Speier, D-Calif., would authorize states to force retailers to collect sales taxes. It differs from a bill introduced in the Senate earlier this year by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)
In a statement, Best Buy endorsed the legislation.
