WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) joined an overwhelming bipartisan House majority today in reauthorizing the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, which would make the ban on Internet access taxes permanent.
“New taxes to access e-mail and other Internet services is the last thing our economy needs right now. Enactment of a permanent moratorium on Internet access taxes will allow American consumers and small businesses to continue to grow and thrive in our Nation’s digital economy,” said Lance.
H.R. 3086, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (PITFA), permanently renews the ban on Internet access taxes. If not renewed by November 1, the old measure would expire and open consumers to the potential tax burden that some experts estimate could be more than twice the average rate for all other goods and services.
“A tax on internet access would burden the millions of Americans who rely on the Internet every day. Americans must be assured they will never be taxed just for going online,” concluded Lance.
