President Signs Bill Making Internet Service Tax Ban Permanent

Yay! The ban has been made permanent. No more having to periodically renew the Internet Tax Freedom Act. Now all we need is a ban on taxes for online purchases.

While federal law has long blocked most states from collecting taxes on Internet service, that prohibition has to be renewed every few years. But today President Obama signed into law a new piece of legislation that makes existing bans permanent, and puts an end date on Internet taxes for the few states that still collect them.
