Adding to the bevy of bills dealing with Web taxation, Reps. Bob Goodlatte and Rick Boucher introduced legislation that would permanently ban discriminatory Internet taxes. Most of the action on the Web tax issue is taking place in the Senate. Lawmakers are negotiating a compromise between anti-tax advocates who want a permanent moratorium and local entities that worry about losing revenue as more transactions take place on the Web. Legislators are facing an October deadline, when the current Web tax moratorium expires. -- Lisa M. Bowman, ZDNet News
