US Senate approves sales tax on online retailers, IBM retail tweeted
The bill is shocking for United States Leading E-commerce giants like ebay, amazon, jcpenney and many others.
The US Senate has passed the ‘Marketplace Fairness Act’ that would impose sales tax on online retailers by 69-27 vote. The detailed news story has been covered by fibre2fashion news desk India
If the bill becomes a law, it would only apply to retailers who sell over US$ 1 million worth of goods online during a year.
If it comes into force, the new law would make online retailers like Amazon, eBay and others to pay sales tax, even in those states where they do not have offices or distribution centres.
The proposed legislation states that sales taxes would be collected by different states and sent to the states where the buyers live.
The bill co-sponsored by Senators Mike Enzi and Dick Durbin also expects states to set up a single entity to pool in Internet tax revenue.
“Today’s action in the Senate is a significant step for sales tax fairness and we look forward to a robust debate in the U.S. House of Representatives,” National Retail Federation (NRF) President and CEO Matthew Shay said in a statement.
NRF Chairman of the Board Stephen I. Sadove said, “Retailers compete for customers on many different levels, distribution channels and fronts, including service and selection, but they cannot compete on sales tax. Congress needs to address this sales tax disparity and allow retailers to compete freely and fairly.”

Many SEO's and Digital Marketers are looking for tactics to add news keyword meta tags in their page source code. Keywords and search queries values in Google News for Publishers.
|News Keyword Meta Tags Are Back Again|
Keywords are the best and effective way for your website content classification. If you create an information-rich site that clearly and accurately describes your topic, you will improve your chances of appearing in our search results for relevant queries by adding words related to the specific news item normally known as keywords.
Google crawler also makes use of a Google specific metatag to help determine classification of your story content. By implementing the news_keywords metatag you can specify which keywords are most relevant to your articles. For example, in an article about the World Cup you could add the following code to help Google News better understand the nature of your content:
<meta name="news_keywords" content="World Cup, Brazil 2014, Spain vs Netherlands">
Keywords could also be used to help disambiguate between related terms. Again, if this particular publisher wanted to specify that this article reported on soccer’s World Cup -- as opposed to rugby’s World Cup -- then they could try the following:
<meta name="news_keywords" content="World Cup, Brazil 2014, Spain vs Netherlands, soccer, football">
Use a comma to separate each phrase or group of keywords. (Commas are the only punctuation allowed in the field.) You can add up to ten phrases for a given article, and all keywords are given equal value. For instance, the first keyword is not considered a stronger signal than the tenth keyword.
Here's is the complete guide, How to use the Google news_keywords meta tag, what it's for and discussion on the implications for websites and SEOs.
