Internet Sales Tax

"More Taxes for Onliine Business"

This affects both online business owners and consumers. Several states have decided to raise their income by forcing sales tax to be charged (and paid to the state) on all internet sales.

Until this started, sales tax was only due if the online business owner had a physical presence in the state of the consumer. Now, they want the tax, no matter where the merchant is located, when the customer is in the state.

Hopefully, someone will sue them regarding it being unconstitutional. But, then, Congress may very well change the Constitution! Can you imagine every online business owner having to file quarterly sales tax returns to every state? UGH!

"iPhones Track Your Movements"

U.S. House of Representatives

"U.S. House Rolls Over for Mega-Communications Companies"

After the large network provider companies, such as ATT&T and Comcast, failed to bully the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) into turning the internet over to them, they've taken another road.

Finding "Net Neutrality" upheld by the FCC, their puppets in the House of Representatives have decided to change the law for them. On April 8, 2011, it voted to repeal the FCC rules to mandate an open and non-discriminatory Internet.

Net Neutrality regulates only the network providers. The purpose of Net Neutrality is to assure no one can take control of what's on the internet: neither the government, nor the big businesses wanting the opportunity to shut-out competition.

How typical of our current lawmakers. If they can't get what they want for their money people one way, they'll simply write a new law. The bill will now go to the Senate.

Stand up for our online rights! Tell them to quash that bill!
