Ayotte continues fight against online sales tax

May 14. 2014 9:24PM

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H, on Wednesday introduced an amendment to protect online business owners from being turned into tax collectors for other states. Ayotte offered her amendment as the Senate debates tax policy legislation.

“The federal government shouldn’t force Internet businesses to become tax collectors for over 9,600 jurisdictions across the country,” said Ayotte. “In New Hampshire, our lack of a sales tax is a source of economic strength. We must stop any effort that would impose new tax collection and audit requirements onto online retailers, and my legislation will protect Internet businesses in New Hampshire and across the nation.”
