For 15 years, the Internet Tax Freedom Act has prohibited the federal government from forcing states to collect sales tax on items sold over the web. While that has helped e-commerce, it's been a burden on Main Street merchants who have advocated strongly that the law tilts the playing field in favor of online retailers. But Congress is now weighing the Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow states to compel online and catalog retailers, no matter where they're located, to collect sales tax at the time of a transaction. The Senate passed the bill earlier this month, but it's now stalled in the House of Representatives. So, our Flash Poll question of the week is:
Should Congress pass the Marketplace Fairness Act?
