Statement on Internet Sales Tax

Statement

Congressman Bob Goodlatte: "A news story published earlier today regarding my position on the Internet sales tax is inaccurate and should be corrected. I have previously stated that I have serious concerns regarding the Marketplace Fairness Act passed by the Senate. However, as clearly stated in a statement on the House Judiciary Committee's website, I am open to considering legislation concerning this topic and the House is working on alternatives to the bill passed by the Senate.

"To be clear, if any action is taken, Congress must be involved in the process and the House Judiciary Committee is looking at alternatives that could enable states to collect sales tax revenues without opening the door to aggressive state action against out-of-state companies. Furthermore, any alternative in the House would address fairness to all businesses and consumers."
