We think the Main Street Fairness Act H.R. 5660 has a number of strong points – it would modernize existing laws, promote a streamlined approach to tax collection, return billions of dollars to state revenues and put all businesses (local and remote) on equal footing. One more important point that has been overlooked is that it supports consumer privacy. The Main Street Fairness Act will eliminate the need for states to enact burdensome and privacy encroaching reporting laws to enforce sales tax collection. States have already started requiring online merchants to report on consumers’ purchases – notably North Carolina and Colorado. Attached is a Press Release from FedTax.net that explains this point of view. We also have an online Petition that lets people express their support for all of the benefits of HR 5660.
