Internet tax bill goes to Bush

Moratorium on Internet tax for 7 more years


A Bill
to extend a moratorium on Internet access taxes for seven years was approved unanimously by the U.S. Senate. There was considerable support for a permanent ban, but unfortunately this version of the Bill did not live long enough to see the light of day as an amendment.

There was also some concern that a total Internet access taxation ban would hamper state and local governments since it is not clear what the future of the Internet will be. However, most Senators thought a moratorium of seven years was better than nothing.

The tax ban, first approved in 1998 and twice renewed, now goes to President Bush for his signature to make it official.
