Now is the time to buy. A broad online sales tax is likely to take effect in early 2013. When it does, the cost of every online purchase may increase by 5% or more.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
This December could mark final month for business owners to revamp their commercial facilities with floor mats, crowd control, signage, and other safety products, without feeling the extra burden of an online sales tax. Eagle Mat has announced the Tax Free December Sale* to spread awareness for this issue, offering guaranteed low prices and free shipping on all facility safety products ordered online by December 31st, 2012.
The proposed tax for online sales is part of the Marketplace Fairness Act, a new bill that is expected to go before the Senate in early 2013. If passed, the Act will give states the authority to require online retailers to collect sales tax for each purchase made through their online store. According to The Washington Times, the Act has gained momentous bi-partisan support on both state and Federal levels. With such widespread backing, the Act is expected to make online sales tax a reality as early as January 2013.
The Marketplace Fairness Act is being lobbied as a means to protect brick-and-mortar businesses from online competitors that offer cheaper tax-free products, however there’s another side to the coin.
When passed, the Act will also tax American businesses on all online purchases. Particularly disadvantaged are organizations that rely on the use of highly specialized products, like industrial matting and flooring products. Such products are most efficiently browsed, compared, and purchased online. However, a new online sales tax would make those purchases significantly more expensive.
"Now is the time to buy," explains Eagle Mat CIO Jon Blumberg. "A broad online sales tax is likely to take effect in early 2013. When it does, the cost of every online purchase may increase by 5% or more."
