The Senate remains poised to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow states to require online retailers to collect sales taxes that could add an estimated 11 billion dollars of currently uncollected sales tax revenue.

The bill exempts retailers who have under $1 million in Internet sales, but plenty of small online retailers who will be subject to this new law say it's creates an impossible burden for them.
