Good news from the U.S. House of Representatives!
The House voted to pass the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (H.R. 235), which is strongly supported bipartisan legislation that permanently protects consumers from having to pay taxes on Internet access.
Now it’s time for the Senate to do the same. The Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act (S. 431), as it’s called in the Senate, is the companion to the bill passed by the House today.
The Internet Tax Freedom Act, as both bills are commonly known, was originally passed in 1998 to foster and encourage the continued expansion of Internet use in the U.S. As we all know, the Internet has revolutionized the way we are able to communicate, learn and do business. This legislation has been incrementally extended over the years, and is scheduled to expire October 1, 2015.
Please take a moment to write your Senators today and urge them to pass S. 431.
Let’s work together to make sure Internet access remains affordable and accessible to everyone, and tax-free forever!
