Support E-Fairness Legislation
Brick and mortar businesses—those with a physical presence—are at a disadvantage compared to online retailers because the remote vendors get away with selling items on the Internet without collecting sales taxes while these Main Street business are obligated to collect and remit them. This imbalance hits locally owned businesses particularly hard and, as a result, adversely impacts local economies. Small businesses lose out on revenue and state governments don’t collect the money needed to pay for necessary services. As E-commerce continues to grow, the problem will only intensify. Tell Congress and State legislatures to support E-Fairness legislation.
