Survey: Most party, costume retailers want Congress to enforce online sales tax

The majority of Party & Paper Retailers who voted in a recent survey are in favor of Congress enacting legislation to enforce sales tax for online purchases.

In our online survey, 64.3% voted yes for federal legislation, while 35.7% said no.

With more and more states passing online sales tax enforcement laws, pressure is mounting on Congress to enact a more wide-sweeping bill to do the same. The National Retail Federation has issued support for such legislation.

The dormant Marketplace Fairness Act from 2013 was recently reintroduced in the U.S. Senate. A House version — the Remote Transactions Parity Act — also has new life.
