Small USA based online merchants, supported by eBay gathered around the “We R Here” initiative to lobby against laws requiring them to collect sales tax.
The group now gathers over 1,000 retailers!
Group’s director Phil Bond had this to say:
It is not the job of small businesses to collect taxes for state and local governments where they don’t live, don’t have a business presence, and don’t receive government services.
