WE R HERE Responds To Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s Release of Principles

We R Here Executive Director and tax fairness advocate Phil Bond issued the following statement in response to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s release of principles pertaining to Internet sales taxes:

“On behalf of We R Here’s member companies, I commend Chairman Goodlatte’s decision to release a statement of principles after a period of serious deliberation. These principles illuminate a path forward for legislative action in the months ahead, while clearly supporting competition between businesses and between states, and demonstrating the fundamental flaws of the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act as passed by the Senate. WE R Here looks forward to continuing our conversations with legislators and our education efforts in the months ahead.”
