Short Take: Florida Net tax study applauded

The Florida Internet Service Providers Association has applauded the outcome of the investigation by the Florida Telecommunications Task Force regarding Internet taxation. Last week, the task force decided that the Net is a growing medium that shouldn't be bogged down with local or state taxes. The Florida Department of Revenue started a storm of controversy last April when it tried to extend an existing tax on "computer exchange services" to Internet access. The governor appointed the task force in response to huge protests over the proposed Net tax.
