We R Here Applauds Chairman Goodlatte's Statement on Senate MFA

Washington, DC - WE R HERE Executive Director and tax fairness advocate Phil Bond today issued the following release in response to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s recent remarks regarding the Marketplace Fairness Act:

“Chairman Goodlatte’s statement that the Marketplace Fairness Act is not the answer is a positive step forward for those concerned about the tax and audit threat this bill poses to small businesses. WE R HERE applauds Chairman Goodlatte’s position that online retailers should not be discriminated against, nor should the Internet be used as a means to regulate and audit out-of-state companies. We continue to believe that these, and the other principles he outlined in September, provide a roadmap to a reasonable legislative solution. We hope to work with him in the months ahead as his committee continues to examine the issue.”
