Below, please find instructions on how you best can help press Congress to write federal legislation to accomplish the following:
- Create a Moratorium until the rules are clear and codified by Congress;
- Prohibition against retroactivity;
- General congressional simplification of the nationwide tax regimes to be less burdensome for companies trying to collect nationwide.

2. In addition to item 1, also ask House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) to immediately introduce a law that will impose a moratorium on states until Congress can evaluate the impact of the Quillstrike-down decision and determine how to protect remote sellers from aggressive and inappropriate state revenue departments and their respective fees and audits. Please email him at email@example.com.

4. Consider an additional contribution to our Tax Action Fund, which provides needed funds for litigation, government relations, and other out-of-pocket costs supporting our tax policy positions. States continue to pass nuisance collection and reporting laws, several of which need to be challenged. The ACMA needs funding to effectively mount these challenges; otherwise, these states will come after you.
