May 20, 2013: Legislators Support Online Sales Tax

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate voted 69 to 27 in favor of the Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow state governments to begin collecting tax on online sales to consumers in their states. Consumers, as one might expect, are not as supportive. According to a poll of more than 1,000 consumers by Endica, a provider of technology for online delivery, 61% of consumers said they oppose the bill, which is supported by many retail associations, including Food Marketing Institute.
