GFOA August Recess Announcement

The “August Recess” is designed to give members of Congress and their staff some time to reorient, so it’s one of the very best times for constituents to communicate with them, either in person or in writing. Please reach out to your member of Congress today urging them to support and co-sponsor the Remote Transactions Parity Act (RTPA) (HR 2775). The RTPA would compel retailers to collect taxes on remote sales, based on the consumer’s location. 

We encourage you to explore and use the resources available on GFOA’s RTPA Resource Page including a RTPA sample letter to Congressional Representatives, as well other material such as talking points and a sample Op-ed. Click here to find out the local address to send the letter and copy for hand-delivery to your Representative’s D.C. office.
