Groups Support McCain Compromise on Internet Access Taxes

Share this content:
The Consumer Internet Access Coalition sent a letter to the U.S. Senate yesterday urging its support of legislation sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, that would extend the moratorium on taxing Internet access for four more years.

The moratorium on taxing Internet access expired Nov. 1.

McCain, chairman of the Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee, introduced the legislation this week, and a vote likely will take place today.

The letter urged Congress "to support Senator McCain's middle-ground proposal."

The legislation also responds to the concerns that state governments have expressed involving voice over Internet protocol.

Thirty-nine groups with varying interests -- including, Americans for Tax Reform, the Direct Marketing Association, Alcatel, AT&T, the Consumer Electronics Association and Time Warner -- signed the letter.
