Marketplace Fairness Act

Florida business organizations are promoting a recent study which suggests the Marketplace Fairness Act can create jobs and build revenue for state governments.  But critics say the law will be detrimental for small businesses.

At a press conference Friday, officials from Florida TaxWatch, the Florida Chamber of Commerce, and the Florida Retail Federation unveiled a study conducted by conservative economist Art Laffer.  The study analyzes the benefits of the Marketplace Fairness Act – a law allowing states to collect tax on internet sales.
