Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act of 2011

Dublin Core

Title

Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act of 2011

Description

Introduced on January 25, 2011, this bill states that local and state taxation on internet access will be permanently banned. It amends the Internet Tax Freedom Act. The bill also prohibits multiple or discriminatory taxes on electronic taxes. The bill is rather short, but if passed, would be a permanent law guaranteeing that the internet will never be taxed.

For the United States to have a "free" internet in terms of privacy and speech, never taxing the use of the internet would protect some of those freedoms.
