The so-called Marketplace Fairness Act would allow the 45 states (and the District of Columbia) that currently charge sales taxes to require large online retailers to collect tax on purchases made by their residents. The law would only apply to online sellers that have sales of at least $1 million in states where they don't have physical operations, like a store or a warehouse.
The Senate voted 69 to 27 to approve the bill, which enjoyed bipartisan support. But before it can become law, it must be approved by the House, where Republicans are split on the issue.
It's only gonna hit the bigger retailers.... but then why do they all support it? 1 million dollars certainly isn't much as far as sales go. Not when you start thinking about overhead. If the bill targeted businesses that have a profit of over a million dollars that would be different. . .
But it doesn't.
I'm standing with the Repubs.
I cannot find a list of those Repubs. =/
