Mobile Future Statement Congress Extends Internet Tax Freedom Act

WASHINGTON, DC – Congress acted to extend the Internet Tax Freedom Act through the end of the fiscal year.

The following statement should be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, Chair of Mobile Future:

“Wireless broadband is the on-ramp to Internet opportunities for millions of American consumers and businesses, and with the explosion of data-hungry mobile tools, Congress should enact policies to enable easier access to these tools. I applaud the extension of the Internet Tax Freedom Act. Congress must now bring certainty to consumers early next year and pass legislation to keep Internet access services free from state and local taxes permanently as well as ensure that e-commerce is not burdened by discriminatory and unfair taxes.”
