House Judiciary Committee to hold hearing on online sales tax collection

House Judiciary Committee

House Judiciary Committee hearing

Tomorrow, November 30, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on “constitutional limitations on states’ authority to collect sales tax in e-commerce”—in other words, on whether states can or should be able to require online retailers to collect sales tax.

With three online sales tax collection bills before Congress and the holiday retail season heating up, it’s no surprise that Congress is moving to act on the issue.

The witness list includes one small business owner; senior executives from eBay, Overstock.com, and Amazon; Texas State Representative John Otto; and Indiana State Senator Luke Kenley, who is also president of the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board.

We’re pleased to see Congress moving ahead on the issue!
