Lawmakers Plan to Disclose Internet Tax Principles

The general principles of a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would clear the way for states to collect sales tax on online purchases will be released soon, according to sources who have worked on the legislation. Staff of the House Judiciary Committee planned to brief House members' staff on the principles that Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte will include in the bill, said the sources, who did not want to pre-empt an announcement by Goodlatte.
