Marketplace Fairness Coalition – Fact Checking The Big Business Lobbyists

The Marketplace Fairness Coaltion sounds like a grass roots small business organization, but is in fact a well funded lobbying machine backed by the largest retailers in the United States.  Wal-Mart, Amazon, Best Buy and other large retailers with to saddle smaller retailers with crippling compliance costs and burdens.  Avalara, one of the founding members of the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board and one of the few online tax Certified Solution Providers admits in one of its white papers “Sales tax compliance in 2013 requires more resources and expertise than most small to midsized businesses possess”.

The point of this website will be to address the fatal flaws with the Marketplace Fairness Act (and the very similar Remote Transaction Parity Act) and to correct the many myths and falsehoods the Marketplace Fairness Coalition is promoting.  And boy, there are plenty of whoppers!
