Senate advances online sales tax measure
The Hill
After the threat of a midnight vote and weekend work, the Senate agreed to advance a bill that would allow states to collect online sales tax. In a 63-30 vote, the Senate ended debate on The Marketplace Fairness Act, S. 743, which would empower states to collect taxes on purchases made online by consumers in their states. The Senate will vote on final passage of the bill when senators return May 6 from a weeklong recess.

Take action: Legislation to deduct health insurance costs introduced
NASE
H.R. 886, allows for the full deduction of health insurance for the self-employed. The self-employed pay on average nearly $1,800 in additional taxes that no other business owners face because they simply decided to purchase health insurance. If the self-employed were allowed to fully deduct their health insurance costs as a business expense, the U.S. economy would have roughly $39 billion injected annually that would allow for individuals to reinvest in their business, purchase goods, and hire additional employees.

Also because your friends, relatives, and most importantly, your competition, are interacting — creating great relationships and building trust — in this global community.
