Congress needs to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA) so there is real and fair competition reflecting 21st century commerce. America was built on promoting economic growth and business in a fashion that ensures fair competition for all.

What Is The Marketplace Fairness Act?

The Marketplace Fairness Act originated as House Resolution 684 by Arkansas’ Third District U.S. Rep. Steve Womack and Senate Bill 336 by Sen. Michael Enzi of Wyoming. If approved, it will authorize states to require online-only retailers to collect sales and use taxes on those retailers’ sales. Supreme Court rulings determined sellers only need to collect sales and use taxes for states where they have a physical presence. The Marketplace Fairness Act would return the sales-tax collection obligation to the sellers in all states.
