Multiple Levies on Digital Goods Targeted by House Bill: Taxes

A key House Republican plans a renewed effort to bar multiple taxes on digital goods and services, offering a revised bill that seeks to overcome objections that stalled a past legislative effort.

Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, a former chairman of the House Judiciary Committee who remains a panel member, earlier this month introduced the measure to prohibit what the effort’s supporters say are discriminatory taxes on music, pictures and other digital goods and services sold over the Internet, Bloomberg BNA reported.
