House votes to outlaw taxes on Internet service

The Hill reports:
The House on Tuesday passed legislation by voice vote that would permanently ban state and local governments from taxing Internet access.

The largely uncontroversial bill would make permanent the Internet Tax Freedom Act, which is set to expire on Nov. 1. The original law passed in 1998, and Congress approved the most recent extension in 2007.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said the measure would prevent Americans from getting an unexpectedly higher tax bill for their Internet use.
