Internet Taxation Bills Hurt Familes, Businesses

In an attempt to acquire more money from consumers and businesses, state lawmakers are proposing legislation that would force Internet retailers to collect Michigan's six percent sales tax if the seller has an "affiliate" located in Michigan.

State lawmakers are looking to tax out-of-state companies as though they were in-state. In Quill Corp. v. North Dakota (1992), the Supreme Court held that only Congress had the power to regulate interstate commerce.

Tell your lawmakers that increasing the prices of goods you buy every day doesn't help you and your family during these tough economic times.
