The National Retail Federation (NRF) welcomed the release of a new set of House Judiciary Committee principles, which lay out a legislative roadmap for addressing the collection of online sales tax:
Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French said, “The National Retail Federation welcomes the release of these principles and appreciates the House Judiciary Committee’s continuing dedication to, and leadership on this retail industry priority.
“These principles will serve as a legislative roadmap for advancing sales tax fairness legislation in the House of Representatives, and demonstrate that Congress is listening to the pleas of local, community retailers and merchants, who continue to face an unfair competitive disadvantage with their online competitors.
“NRF looks forward to analyzing and discussing these principles with our members, and remains confident that Congress will address the unlevel playing this legislative session. We look forward to providing critical feedback to the Committee and welcome any opportunity to participate in forthcoming legislative hearings.”
