Boehner Kills Internet Sales Tax Bill

Updated 4:26 p.m. | Roll Call | 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 sales tax is dead, according to Boehner’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.”

A bipartisan group passed the Marketplace Fairness Act out of the Senate, led by Sens. Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., and Michael B. Enzi, R-Wyo., but it has languished in the House.

Backers had hoped to get the bill through during the lame-duck session. ... more here...

" Friends and neighbors complain that taxes are indeed very heavy, and if those laid on by the government were the only ones we had to pay, we might the more easily discharge them; but we have many others, and much more grievous to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly. "
