/// eBay Contends That Sales Tax Proposal Will Hurt Small Businesses
A new bill introduced to the Senate this week, which would finally require Amazon and other online retailers to pay local sales taxes, has one major objector: eBay. The company’s opposition to the proposal is a little surprising, since the bill itself would not substantially change the way it conducts business. But eBay is arguing that it could affect the lives of some of its largest marketplace sellers. “No small business should face new taxes,” said Brian Bieron, eBay’s senior director of global public policy. “There’s no benefit compared to the harm that would be done.” The Marketplace Fairness Act, reintroduced to the Senate this week , will allow states to collect sales tax online, as long as they have simplified their tax laws.
