#EfairnessForTheHolidays

Ask federal officials to include e-fairness in the year-end budget package

As Congress winds up negotiations on an omnibus budget package before the end of the year, retailers as hopeful e-fairness language will be coupled with a permanent version of the Internet Tax Freedom Act.

Although we know it's a busy time of the year, we urge retailers in Minnesota to contact Senate and House members and ask them to urge federal legislative leaders to deliver e-fairness to retailers this holiday season!
