PG Taxers seek to tax Internet sales

Comment:  As seems to be the routine in Annapolis, the sponsors of this bill have given it a misleading title and synopsis to try to hide the real purpose.

HB 337, SB 622

PG Sponsors:

  • Delegates Howard, Ivey, and Ross
  • Senators Currie, Peters, and Rosapepe

Entitled: Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement

Removing a provision making the State's adoption of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement contingent on the enactment by the U.S. Congress of legislation consenting to the Agreement; and requiring the Comptroller by October 1, 2009, to prepare and submit draft legislation and proposed regulations relating to the implementation of the Agreement to the Governor, the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee, and the House Committee on Ways and Means.
