NetChoice Opposes Legislation Affecting Small Online Businesses

August 2, 2011

Responding to proposed legislation that would increase tax burdens for small online retailers, Steve DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice, made the following statement:

“Congress often says that small businesses are the backbone of the economic recovery, but these new collection costs will break the backs of many small online businesses. This legislation fails to define safe harbors for small businesses, virtually guaranteeing that small and medium retailers will receive little help in complying with thousands of state and local tax jurisdictions.”
