Don't tax the internet

This petition had 142,898 supporters

Since 1998, there has been a ban on taxing Internet access. But that ban is set to expire on November 1, 2014 unless the Senate passes the Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act - which will permanently extend the ban on Internet access taxes.

Just last week, the House voted in favor of the permanent extension of the Internet Tax Freedom Act and the Senate could vote on this issue any day now. That's why it's so imporant you sign this petition and send a message to your Senator today! 

If the Senate fails to pass this bill, many U.S. residents could see tax increases on something as simple as accessing the internet. Access to the internet is essential to families and students throughout the country and taxing it will make it more difficult for low-income families to maintain that access.
