Ever hear of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement? You will. 22 states are cooperating to unify sales taxes on online purchases. Over 1,000 companies have agreed to cooperate.
Congress is also considering a new tax plan intended to create a unified sales tax for shoppers, businesses and governments, and helping all states collect sales taxes on Internet purchases.
Lawmakers are also considering whether to continue the temporary ban on Internet taxes when it expires Nov. 1. If it's nixed, expect taxes and fees on broadband and dial-up connections and email accounts.
