DMA pushes for Internet extension

Published on .

New York--The Direct Marketing Association Wednesday urged the House Judiciary Committee to extend the moratorium on Internet taxes. The move comes as the Administrative Law Committee of the House Judiciary conducts hearings to discuss whether sales taxes should be added to Internet and catalog sales across state lines. The DMA, a trade association of print catalog and Internet merchants, said it supports a continued moratorium on Internet and catalog taxes as Congress seeks a way to streamline more than 7,400 different tax codes that apply to interstate purchases. In general, the DMA supports one sales tax per state for both remote and over-the-counter sales, a single audit form recognized by all 50 states and other measures that would make retailers efficient when dealing with 50 state revenue departments.
