TELL CONGRESS: DON’T TAX MY INTERNET!

Whether you are aware of it or not, Internet access is currently free of usage taxes because of a 1998 bill signed by President Bill Clinton and renewed twice by President George W. Bush - the Internet Tax Freedom Act.

This important legislation prevents government – federal, state, and local – from laying discriminatory taxes on Internet service, preventing taxes on things like Internet access, Internet usage (bit tax), and even email.

On June 9, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 235 to make the Internet Tax Freedom Act permanent... and now it's time for the United States Senate to do the same.

Take Action! Blast faxes to U.S. Senators demanding they pass S. 431, the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act, before it expires on October 1, 2015!

To the Honorable [Senate Member],

In 1998, the Internet Tax Freedom Act was signed into law by President Clinton and later extended twice by President George W. Bush. This law prohibits government from laying taxes on Internet usage, thus keeping the Internet largely tax-free.

I believe that preventing local, state, and federal governments from taxing the Internet is something that needs to be permanent, and I ask you to work with your colleagues toward that end.

The fact is, tax-free Internet access could end when the current extension to the Internet tax moratorium expires.

As the passage and subsequent extensions of the Internet Tax Freedom Act have been bipartisan, extending the law permanently should be something that you and the majority of your colleagues can easily get behind.

According to recent data, the United States ranks fifteenth (1) in Internet service (speed per cost) among other nations in the First World. This is to say that we already pay a good deal more than other countries for Internet service.

This said, if our Internet is opened to increased taxation me and my fellow Americans will be forced to pay even more than we already do for Internet that can only be described as “average.”

I agree with Senator Heller as he says, “every American should be able to access the Internet without penalties from the federal government.”

This said, I ask you to join your colleagues in the House by supporting S. 431 to keep my email and Internet service tax-free!
