Sell My Timeshare NOW and the Internet Tax
Friday, October 5, 2007
Last week, SeacoastOnline ran an article about Sell My Timeshare NOW. Here’s part of what they had to say about us, “Sell My Timeshare NOW is among the many Internet-based companies speaking out loudly about the Nov. 1 expiration of the Internet access tax moratorium.
…Although the company has a storefront at its Dover corporate office, it primarily reaches its customers via the Internet. Last year, SellMyTimeshareNOW.com presented over $233 million to timeshare owners who wanted to sell timeshare or rent timeshare they no longer used. An Internet access tax could hit this timeshare resales and rentals company with a double-whammy, subjecting it to new taxes while also adding new taxes on the company’s customers who need Internet access to reach it.”
The article captures our feelings precisely here at Sell My Timeshare NOW. As businesspeople and as individual consumers, we don’t want to pay taxes for internet access. We don’t think you want to either.
On Thursday, Sept 27, Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Chairman Daniel Inouye, a Hawaii Democrat, pulled the Internet Tax Freedom Extension Act from a list of bills scheduled to be amended and approved that day. Inouye was quoted by Grant Gross of IDG News Service, as saying, "further negotiations are warranted."
You will probably never have an opportunity to get all those existing taxes removed from your phone bill and other communications services, but here’s a chance to speak out and put a stop to the internet access tax before the current moratorium expires.
