At TradePort in Somersworth, Ayotte Renews Pledge to Block Online Sales Tax

U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte recently visited TradePort in Somersworth to discuss her ongoing efforts in the Senate to combat online sales tax legislation and her support for the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act. TradePort employs approximately 16 New Hampshire workers, and works to improve their client's supply chain through excess inventory recovery, reverse logistics, merchandising, and marketing.

"I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with workers at TradePort's and learn about their innovative business," Ayotte said. "It's crucial to ensure that New Hampshire businesses like TradePort won't be subjected to burdensome online sales tax requirements, and I'll continue to lead the fight against this harmful tax scheme. I'll also continue to fight for permanently extending the moratorium on Internet access taxes, so that TradePort and other businesses can keep using the Internet to drive e-commerce, grow their businesses, and create jobs."

Ayotte has led the fight in Congress against the mis-named "Marketplace Fairness Act," which was reintroduced earlier this year in the Senate and would require Internet businesses to collect sales taxes for nearly 10,000 jurisdictions across the country. Because New Hampshire is one of five states with no sales tax, Ayotte has worked diligently to protect New Hampshire Internet businesses from being forced to collect sales taxes. She has previously introduced bipartisan legislation expressing the sense of the Senate that no federal legislation should give states the authority to impose any new burdensome or unfair tax collecting requirements on Internet businesses and entrepreneurs.
