Short Take: Massachusetts passes Net sales tax exemption

Massachusetts's state Assembly passed a bill Tuesday to exempt Internet service providers from a five percent telecommunications sales tax. Customers already pay this fee for regular phone service. The bill now goes before the state Senate but may not face a final vote until later this year as the state runs on a two-year legislative cycle.
