Enzi’s Internet Sales Tax Bill Passes Senate
The Senate passed the Marketplace Fairness Act by a 69-27 vote Monday. The bill, sponsored by Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), would give state and local governments the ability to collect sales tax on out-of-state, catalog and online sales. No state would be forced to collect the sales tax, but would have the authority to make this decision if they so choose. Enzi said it’s a conversation state residents and their state legislators should be able to have.
