Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund calls on Congress to protect businesses from tax compliance burden in wake of Supreme Court decision


Atlanta, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement on today’s Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision to overturn the physical presence standard for taxation of Internet sales is disappointing, and will likely have a negative impact on online sales and our bustling Internet economy.  We are particularly concerned about the impact on small online sellers who could be subjected to collecting taxes for more than 10,000 tax jurisdictions across the country. In order to protect all online sellers from this compliance burden, we call on Congress to pass legislation that protects all businesses from being forced to act as tax collectors for out-of-state jurisdictions.”
