CPA Rep. John Otto Testifies Before Congressional Hearing

The Texas Retailers Association issued a press release commending CPA Rep. Otto (R-Dayton) for testifying before the U.S. House Judiciary committee in support of H.R. 3179, the Marketplace Equity Act which would create a constitutional framework for collecting sales taxes online.  Otto expressed concerns to the committee about the competitive disadvantage that arises between local retailers and online retailers when online retailers don’t have to collect the 8 to 10 percent state sales taxes. Otto said this gives the online retailer a “significantly unfair marketplace advantage.”
