In a release, the free market think tank R Street Institute argued that Goodlatte’s proposals marks a welcome departure from “an unworkable ‘destination sourcing’ system” that would wipe away all geographic limits to state tax power, impose staggering complexity on internet-enabled businesses, and create an uneven playing field between local and remote transactions.”

“Though we are reviewing details, we welcome Chairman Goodlatte’s fresh thinking to what had become a very stale debate,” Andrew Moylan, the group’s executive director, said in a statement. “His legislation should prove the final nail in the coffin of fatally flawed bills … which would empower states to tax outside their borders.”
