No Internet Taxation

Internet access taxation is a tax ISP charges which are then passed to consumers.

Bandwidth tax is progessive, applying on a scale according to the speed of your connection.

The UN proposed a 1-cent-per-100-emails tax. Proponents believe that its weath-redistribution effects make it an ideal tax for implementation globally.

The internet has been mostly safe from taxation since its inception. Now with pro-tax politicians in control of Congress, the political dynamic appears to have shifted in favor of internet taxation and their allies on Capitol Hill.

These taxes will endanger innovation on the web and will hobble the future for individual users and small businesses. Please join the fight to defend the internet.
