The Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce (ACEC) held its third meeting this year Dec. 14 and 15 in San Francisco to discuss the controversial issue of Internet taxation, and ACEC Commissioner Stan Sokul indicated that consensus to extend the tax moratorium may be at hand.
Appointed by Congress and established under the Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA) in 1998, the commission is charged with the responsibility of studying the impact of federal, state, local, and international taxation and tariffs on Internet transactions and Internet access. The commission’s report is due to Congress by April 2000. Meanwhile, ITFA imposed a three year moratorium on new e-commerce taxes.
