WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) sent a letter to all members of the House of Representatives, urging them to support H.R. 235, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act. This bill would place a moratorium on discriminatory taxes on the Internet and taxes on Internet access. The letter was signed by Tom Schatz, President of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste. The letter reads:

"On behalf of the more than one million members and supporters of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), I ask you to support H.R. 235, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act. The House has already approved the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act by voice vote on July 15, 2014. Unfortunately, the Senate failed to act and instead agreed to extend the moratorium.

"In 1998, the Internet Tax Freedom Act placed a moratorium on discriminatory taxes on the Internet and taxes on Internet access. With wide bipartisan support, the Internet tax ban was extended in 2001, 2004, and 2008. The most recent extension was included in the $1.1 trillion Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, which passed in December 2014. For 17 years, the ban on these inequitable taxes has benefited millions of Americans by enabling them to conduct transactions on the Internet free from worry about additional tax burdens. With the current ban set to expire on September 30, 2015, it is now time to make this ban permanent.

Here we go again! Hmmm I wonder if they could possibly pass up the amount of cash this would generate.
