Taxpayers Protection Alliance Applauds Senate on PITFA Passage!
Internet Access Taxes Permanently Banned After Bipartisan Vote in Senate
Washington, D.C.- Today, the Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) applauded the Senate for passing the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (PITFA), a permanent ban on Internet access taxes, as apart of H.R. 644, The Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015. The House has already passed PITFA, so the Senate’s vote brings the legislation one step closer. TPA urges President Obama to sign the bill and end the threat of Internet access taxes, forever. After nearly two decades of temporary extensions, taxpayers and consumers of all income levels are on the verge of a major victory. The federal government has been determined to stifle the growth of the Internet by imposing draconian regulations and taxes. Americans are taxed enough already. Now, with just the signature of the President, that ban will be permanent.
