   1. Is the business of selling domain names subject to "sales tax"?
   2. Do you have Registrars or resellers positioned across different parts
   of the United States?
   3. Are their core businesses "taxable"?

If the answers to (1) and (2) are in the negative, then the Bill has
nothing to do with ICANN but from experience Bills have a habit of changing
