Small business owners across the country are very worried about having to collect online sales taxes for states other than their own. The Associated Press spoke with some of them, including WE R HERE member Dean Davis, revealing their concern.

Did you Know?

Myth: 
Allowing online purchases to go untaxed gives an unfair advantage to online retailers over traditional, brick-and-mortar stores

Fact:
Actually, large traditional retailers who also sell online currently enjoy many advantages and are many of the largest online retailers. Of the top 25 Internet retailers, 18 are “brick & click” (having large conventional retail operation in addition to an online presence) and their share of U.S. online commerce is growing each year. Proportionately, these large “brick & click” retailers have lower shipping costs, lower expenses for medical and business insurance, and lower operating costs generally than is the case for small online retailers. From 2008-2010, those large “brick & click” retailers with sales over $20 million grew their share of online sales from 33 percent to 38 percent; the share for smaller Web-enabled retailers with sales under $20 million plummeted from 69 percent to 51 percent.

The Marketplace Fairness Act died in 2012’s Congress, but Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) on Wednesday announced plans to reintroduce it. 

When reintroduced, we need to make sure members of congress know we do not support it!

Yup, that's us! 

Please share & help us in our fight against current proposed Internet sales tax legislation that threatens to kill the growth and job creation potential of small online retailers. 

Myth: 
Internet sales tax legislation now being considered in Congress already includes an exemption for small businesses.

Fact:
The current bills lack a true small business exemption. In fact, they replace the small business exemptions in previous proposals with a “small seller exception” that is arbitrary and does not recognize the importance of online small businesses as job creators. These bills do not protect small business retailers.
