MTC Sends Letter on Digital Goods Act

The Commission sent a letter to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate Committee on Finance and the House Judiciary Committee regarding H.R. 1643/S. 851, the Digital Goods and Services Tax Fairness Act of 2015.  The Chair of the Commission, Alabama Commissioner of Revenue Julie Magee, expressed concerns about the bill, highlighting some flaws in the legislation --

• Remote sellers will be able to structure sales to avoid collecting tax
• Digital goods and services are given most-favored tax status
• The Act creates unnecessary problems for state tax administrators
