House and Senate Move On Internet Tax Freedom and Marketplace Fairness Legislation | July 21, 2014 -NACS Goverment Relations Update | Both the House and Senate are moving two measures that would affect the college store industry. On July 15, the House passed H.R. 3086, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (PIFTA). The legislation, introduced by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), would permanently extend the Internet Tax Freedom Act (IFTA), which prevents state and local taxation of Internet access.

In an attempt to seize on the momentum in the House and expected action on a similar bill in the Senate, the lead Marketplace Fairness Act sponsors, Sens. Mike Enzi (R-WY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Mark Pryor (D-AR), introduced S. 2609, the Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act (MITFA). This bill combines a revised version of the Senate-passed Marketplace Fairness Act with IFTA, allowing states and local governments to collect the sales tax they are already owed on Internet purchases while extending IFTA for 10 years. For more information on MITFA, see the following: summary; full bill text; and a press release in support from the International Council of Shopping Centers.
