Public support is waning for the Marketplace Fairness Act, according to a new poll commissioned by the National Taxpayers Union and the R Street Institute

…“People very strongly dislike this bill, and we’ve long made the argument that the bill is terrible policy because it expands state tax collection and it has serious constitutional issues, and this just sort of reinforces the idea that it’s also bad politics,” RSI’s Andrew Moylan said on the call.

Internet sales taxes have an adverse reaction on Millennials, as nearly half of all likely voters under the age of 40 purchase goods and services online on a regular basis according to the study. The NTU and R Street Institute believe that the issue is one that could help win over younger voters, as a result, given that a majority of younger Americans oppose the legislation.
