U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) recently urged President Barack Obama to sign the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act.
The act contains the Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA), which would permanently extend the ban on taxing the Internet.
"I have long believed that the Internet should be tax-free, and I have spearheaded efforts to permanently ban state and local authorities from imposing economy-crippling taxes on the Internet," McCain said. "Most recently, I was proud to be an original co-sponsor ... Keeping Internet services tax-free is critical to ensuring U.S. companies continue to grow and innovate, and that average Americans do not have to pay more to stay connected in our increasingly digital and globalized economy."
McCain continues the fight to keep the Internet tax-free by supporting and co-sponsoring legislation that bans taxation by state and local governments. He co-sponsored the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act of 2007, which was extended several times, and is also a co-sponsor of the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act.
