Boehner Kills Internet Sales Tax Bill (Updated)
Tax-free Internet shopping is safe for now thanks to Speaker John A. Boehner.
A bill granting states the ability to force out-of-state websites to collect Internet sales tax is dead, according to the Ohio Republican’s spokesman.
“The speaker has made clear in the past he has significant concerns about the bill, and it won’t move forward this year,” said spokesman Kevin Smith. “The Judiciary Committee continues to examine the measure and the broader issue. In the meantime, the House and Senate should work together to extend the moratorium on internet taxation without further delay.”

This is great. I sell things online, and you just have no idea how complicated it would be to set up a website to collect sales tax at different rates from each state, not to mention each county in each state which may have a different tax rate. And how expensive it would be to get a sales tax license in each state

I guess he does have a heart. Wait, there must be a catch somewhere.
Either a heart, or Amazon and eBay are major campaign donors.
