Heitkamp: Let states tax Internet sales
In her maiden speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate Tuesday, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., called for the federal government to “level the playing field” and allow states to collect sales taxes on Internet sales.
The Marketplace Fairness Act, of which Heitkamp is a co-sponsor, continues an effort she made more than 20 years ago when, as North Dakota tax commissioner, she worked to get mail-order catalogue companies to pay the appropriate sales tax in states where they did business.
