Net Tax Ban Extended

House votes for permanent Net tax ban: Good news for everyone.

“The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to make a ban on Internet use taxes permanent and require nine states to repeal existing taxes on access fees.

Lawmakers passed a bill by voice vote that would cement a ban on Internet access and traffic taxes currently due to expire in November, and remove a grandfather clause that allows a handful of states to levy taxes that were in place before the ban was first passed in 1998.”
