Now that the Marketplace Fairness bill, referred to also as the online sales tax parity issue, has moved to the US House of Representatives, local officials need to be contacting their Congressional Representative to urge them to move the bill. Currently, the House introduced bill, H.R. 684, is in the House Judiciary Committee. But, while the bill is not up for the full House yet, we still need to communicate with our delegation so they know how important this issue is to local communities. You can get contact information for your member of Congress here. This parity would bring hundreds of millions in lost revenue back to Michigan! Urge your Congressperson to Support the Marketplace Fairness Bill!
