Share this content:
The public strongly opposes efforts to impose new Internet tax-collection schemes, according to a report issued yesterday by the Federal Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce. As of the most recent meeting of the commission in December, 7,794 Americans have urged it to oppose new Internet tax schemes, while 519 favored the idea. Since it held its first meeting last spring, 31,805 Americans have contacted the commission. Of those, 93 percent said they oppose new Internet taxes and tax-collection schemes.
