Sample resolution on collection of existing Internet sales tax available
One of the biggest issues discussed at the League’s 83rd Convention in June was the issue of Internet sales tax collection. We are imploring Governor Asa Hutchinson to call a Special Session in order to pass legislation facilitating the collection of the existing Internet sales tax.
With Amazon’s voluntary collection, many cities and towns have seen a sizable increase in May’s sales tax receipts over last May’s receipts.
During Resolutions Committee meetings, the League distributed copies of a sample resolution on “Creating a Fair and Free Market” for all businesses in Arkansas. We urged and are continuing to urge our member cities to pass this resolution and send a copy of their adopted resolution to the Governor’s Office, to your local legislators and to the League.
