There is nothing FAIR about this proposed new tax law, it will kill thousands of small businesses and make it easier for businesses like Amazon, Walmart, Sears, Home Depot and Target to take more of your dollars while taking them from small business.
The Marketplace Fairness Act – Redefining “Fairness” to Favor Large Retailers
….All states have use tax laws, and it is their burden to enforce them.
Not all states, however, have adequate mechanisms in place for collection of the tax from individuals.
This lack of infrastructure is not the fault of the out of state retailers; it’s the fault of the bureaucracy.
They’ve had sixty years to correct it yet they’ve done nothing. If the best you can do is add a line to the individual
income tax return, you aren’t really trying.
Online Sales Tax Is a Money Grab by Politicians
…To understand why this is a radical step, imagine if you took a trip to Las Vegas and played blackjack,
but then got arrested when you returned home because your state doesn’t allow gambling.
Internet taxation without representation
…Another curious facet of the MFA is that it carves out a sizable exception for smaller companies, specifically those which have less than
$500,000 per year in gross receipts in online sales. That rather defeats the “fairness” argument – why should a traditional retailer with
$500,000 in annual sales pay tax, while the online retailer with comparable sales does not? It’s also a tacit admission that the Internet
sales tax reporting requirements would be ridiculously complicated. One reason online giant Amazon.com has been playing ball with state tax
authorities recently is that they’re big enough to handle tax remission to fifty different states, with fifty different sets of tax law,
but they know full well that some of their smaller competitors don’t have the resources to deal with such a regulatory burden.
(This is why the largest corporations will sometimes embrace taxes and rules that would, on the surface, appear to hurt them.
The pain is quite bearable if the big company knows its competitors will be hurt more.)
For online sales taxes, just follow the money
…To capture 93% of uncollected taxes (the green section of the chart), Congress need only require the top 500 sellers to collect for remote states.
That would set the small business exception at $15 million in annual sales – a number that is one hundred times larger than Amazon’s $150,000
Stop the Online Sales Tax - Marketplace Fairness Act
…this bill represents yet more crony capitalism, as this is strongly supported by Amazon.com, who will gain greatly from the competition that will be forced out of business due to this disgusting legislation.

First class business travel in the era of cigars, cigarettes, three-piece suits, white shirts and narrow ties took place aboard Santa Fe’s renowned El Capitan and Chief streamlined passenger trains. The Mohave Lounge Car was originally built in 1953 by the Budd Company a leading manufacturer of stainless steel streamlined passenger rolling stock for a number of railroads.
After twenty years of service on the Santa Fe and another twenty years for Amtrak the Mohave Lounge Budd railcar was purchased by Mid America Railcar Leasing. The Mohave Lounge Car underwent an extensive rebuilding that combined the newest railroad systems and safety technologies with the distinctive Santa Fe ambiance of the railroad’s great Streamlined period.
Included in the interior restoration of this vintage railcar was an upholstered version of the distinctive Deco Aluminum restaurant chair. The Deco style, small scale, light weight and durable construction of this aluminum chair made it the perfect choice for everyday use aboard the Mohave Lounge.
