eBay Inc. Statement Regarding Internet Sales Tax Legislation

Brian Bieron, Senior Director of Global Public Policy at eBay Inc., made the following statement today in response to the United States Senate’s approval of the Marketplace Fairness Act:

“The contentious debate in the Senate shows that a lot more work needs to be done to get the Internet sales tax issue right, including ensuring that small businesses using the Internet are protected from new burdens that harm their ability to compete and grow. eBay will continue to focus on bringing greater balance to the legislation by protecting small businesses with less than $10 million in sales or fewer than 50 employees.”
