US Treasury Secretary Urges Senate To Pass Permanent Net Tax Ban

07 November 2003


US Treasury Secretary, John Snow and Commerce Secretary, Don Evans on Wednesday urged the Senate to pass legislation making the moratorium on internet taxation permanent.

In a joint statement, the two men announced that:

"We believe that the government should support the widespread availability and use of the Internet, including the use of broadband technology, and not discourage the Internet's growth through new access taxes."

"Keeping the Internet free of multiple or discriminatory taxes will help create an environment for innovation and will help ensure that electronic commerce remains a vital, and growing, part of our economy. A permanent moratorium means a permanent victory for American consumers and businesses."

They concluded: "We urge the Senate to pass S. 150 as soon as possible so President Bush can sign a permanent Internet tax moratorium."
