Will You Soon Be Taxed to Use the Internet?

If Congress fails to act before December, new taxes could show up on your next internet bill, reports KTVU TV in San Francisco.

For the past 16 years, a moratorium has been in place keeping state and local governments from passing laws that would create taxes on internet use.

The moratorium was set to expire on Nov. 1, but Congress was able to extend the deadline until after the mid-term elections, to Dec. 11 as part of the stop-gap funding bill passed before they left town earlier this month.

You have to always be nervous about legislation that is re-secheduled for after the elections.
