The Marketplace Fairness Act/Internet Sales Tax would overturn a 1992 Supreme Court decision and would allow for States to impose on out of state businesses the requirement of collecting a new sales tax. If signed into law, businesses would potentially have to comply with approximately 10,000 different tax jurisdictions. Supporters of this legislation are supporting new taxes. The Senate passed a version of this legislation on May 6, 2013 by a roll call vote of 69-27.
