RETAILERS OPPOSE DIGITAL ADVERTISING TAX

CRMA is urging Governor Lamont and legislative leaders to oppose the digital advertising tax now being considered. 

Although proponents aimed the tax at international companies such as Google and Facebook, it is local Connecticut businesses that will feel the impact.  At the worst possible time.  Read the letter to the Governor here.  Contact CRMA to help defeat the tax on digital advertising.
