We have a small window of opportunity right now to persuade Congress to address a critically important issue for independent businesses: internet sales tax fairness.

The Senate passed legislation to close the online sales tax loophole in 2013, but if the House doesn’t act in the next few weeks, the bill will die. Members of Congress who support e-fairness are working to move the bill before the lame duck session ends on Dec. 11, but they need to hear from all of us.
