President Bush Signs Internet Access Tax Ban Into Law

WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- President George W. Bush on Friday signed a bill that will ban new state and local taxes on Internet access services, such as America Online, for three years.

Sen. George Allen, R-Va., a main sponsor who attended the White House bill signing ceremony, said the bill "is an important step forward in bridging the economic digital divide."

The bill revives a federal ban on state and local taxes on Internet access services that had expired Nov. 1, 2003. The new moratorium, retroactive to last year, will expire Nov. 1, 2007, and will be expanded to include high-speed wireless and DSL services. The tax moratorium doesn't affect sales taxes on Internet sales.

The measure is a priority for Internet access providers such as America Online, a unit of Time Warner Inc. (TWX), Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and Earthlink Inc. (ELNK).

Walter B. McCormick, Jr., president and chief executive officer of the United States Telecom Association, said in a statement the bill signing "brings the nation one step closer" to Bush's goal of deploying broadband in all communities by 2007.

Roger Cochetti, an official with the U.S. Public Policy for the Computing Technology Industry Association, called the bill "a welcome holiday gift."

"Americans can remain confident that the Internet will flourish as a powerful consumer and business tool," he said.

The bill expanded the original federal ban on Internet access taxes to prevent new taxes on broadband Internet access. This was intended to address at least 19 states that tax Internet access over digital subscriber lines.

The expanded broadband provision sparked opposition from governors, mayors and other local officials. Their champions in the Senate, including Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., argued the original version of the broadband tax moratorium was too broad and threatened some $20 billion in local tax collections. It was later narrowed to address their concerns.

Alexander has said governors and mayors should sit down with telecommunication executives to hammer out a permanent solution to the issue that doesn't harm state and local tax revenues.

The House had approved a permanent ban on Internet access taxes earlier this year. The Senate, however, backed the four-year ban as a compromise with state and local interests. House Republicans vow to push for a permanent ban next year.

The bill renews for four years a provision exempting states that taxed dial-up Internet access before October 1998. There's an exception for Wisconsin, where its tax exemption expires in three years.

Another provision in the bill exempts for two years those states that imposed taxes on broadband Internet access before November 2003.
