CompTIA Supports ITFA Permanent Extension

Dec 11, 2015

Washington – CompTIA, the Computing Technology Industry Association, voices their appreciation and support for inclusion of the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA) in the trade customs conference report filed this week.

"We are thoroughly pleased that a permanent extension of the ITFA has been included in the customs conference report filed this week in Congress,” said Elizabeth Hyman, Executive Vice President, CompTIA. “This legislation works to ward off growing complexity of our federal and state tax systems.  Without this legislation, Internet service providers could be required to set up accounting systems to collect sales taxes from Internet users in order to file and remit sales tax returns in multiple state and local taxing jurisdictions.”

We urge both the House and Senate to act quickly on passage.
