Most Wisconsin voters oppose internet sales tax law

Posted: Updated:
 MADISON (WKOW) -- A new poll shows a majority of Wisconsin voters oppose the new federal internet sales tax law.

The National Taxpayers Union says their poll found 63% of likely voters oppose the Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow tax enforcement agents from one state to collect taxes from online retailers based in a different state.

Hanna Cook-Wallace of Studio Jewelers LTD says, "If I lose sales over and over and over again, that's not good for the Wisconsin economy and the job situation."

The Alliance for Wisconsin Retailers supports the Marketplace Fairness Act.

It notes all other Wisconsin-based businesses have to collect sales tax, and that Governor Walker promised to use additional tax money collected from e-fairness legislation to cut income taxes.
