Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced the No Regulation Without Representation Act of 2016 in the House of Representatives. 

In their never ending quest for new revenues, states are increasingly looking for ways to shift tax and regulatory burdens to people from other states—to whom elected officials are unaccountable. The No Regulation Without Representation Act of 2016 prohibits states from regulating beyond their borders by imposing sales tax collection requirements on individuals with no physical presence in the taxing state and no vote in the representation that would implement the tax.

Congressman Sensenbrenner:
“States should not have the ability to tax non-citizens, plain and simple. This legislation would help reduce burdensome overregulation, keep government overreaches in check, and ensure that only residents of a state are subjected to tax obligations.”
