Here is a paper in support of extending the moratorium on taxes on Internet access.

MyWireless.org® used Tax Filing Day 2007 to call for “tax freeze” moratoriums to be placed on all new federal, state and local wireless and Internet access taxes. Bi-partisan legislation placing moratoriums, on both wireless and Internet access taxes, has been introduced in 2007 in both the U. S. House of Representatives and Senate during this current session of Congress. Last year, the average tax burden placed upon America’s 235+ million wireless consumers had climbed to over 17% on average in taxes, fees and surcharges per monthly bill. Recent polling data shows that 93% of wireless consumers are extremely happy with their services and choices, and don't want their state or the federal government meddling with regulations in a marketplace that works for them. Tax Day presents an appropriate occasion to call upon all wireless users to contact their elected officials in Washington to ask for their leadership on these important consumer issues. ##

Please support Senate Bill 156 to make the internet permanently exempt from taxes.

No Internet Tax, period.

If they start taxing access, then I fear that the tax rate would climb every year there after.

This has happened on my satillite since 1996. It has increased from 8% to a little over 13%.

Enough is enough.

Stop taxing us into debt.

There is virtually no way that the majority of democrats will support "No Internet Tax".

Start collecting old computer cases now, and take out the electronics. Put a block of foam in them so they will be able to float when thrown in water.

You get the idea.

We need to try. Even Democrats understand what it means if enough citizens threaten them with losing their cushy job.

We made a significant impact on them with their BS Immigration Amnesty Bills etc. Now it is time to be proactive and explain that we do not want another tax, especially something that could be as detrimental as taxing the Internet.
