The online real estate industry and the general public may want to take
advantage of a Nov. 15 deadline to submit proposals to the Advisory
Committee on Electronic Commerce regarding potential Web taxes.
The commission is studying international, federal, state and local Internet
tax impacts, but isn't necessarily supporting Web taxes.
Issues covered by the ACEC also include burdens on sellers, discrimination,
international considerations, technology, privacy, local and federal
autonomy concerns and constitutional considerations.
Following Federal Register Notices guidelines, submissions should be a
maximum of eight, single-spaced pages; and 30 hard copies should be sent
along. They can also be sent via e-mail and by 3-1/2 inch floppy disk or
CD-ROM, in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint formats. E-mail submissions
can include a single copy.
The e-mail address is comments at ecommercecommission.org. The mailing address
is Advisory Commission on Electronic Commission, 3401 North Fairfax Dr.,
Arlington, VA. 22201-4498.
The commission may request formal presentations.
The 19-member ACEC was appointed by Congress in 1998 as part of the Internet
