+ - Sentate to vote on Internet Sales Tax (for real this time)->

Submitted by JoeyRox
JoeyRox writes: On 3/22 the Senate approved (http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/295115-senate-poised-to-back-internet-sales-tax) a non-binding proposal to allow states to tax online sales to residents outside their state. That vote was a trial balloon to gauge the support for the Marketplace Fairness Act. This week Reid filed a cloture (http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/295115-senate-poised-to-back-internet-sales-tax) to allow the law to be voted on for real this time. The vote may occur as soon as tomorrow. eBay is attempting to rally Americans against the bill via a massive email campaign (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/21/ebay-online-sales-tax_n_3127098.html?utm_hp_ref=business).
