'Thrift Hunters' Star Jason T. Smith to Speak to Congress about Internet Sales Tax Issues

ATLANTA, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Jason T. Smith began his little store on eBay with hopes that he could eventually earn enough money selling things he found at thrift shops to take his wife out to dinners and cover his expenses. Now, Smith—one-half of the Thrifting with the Boys (http://www.thrifting-with-the-boys.com/) duo and co-star, with Bryan Goodman, of Spike TV's hit "Thrift Hunters" (http://www.spike.com/shows/thrift-hunters)—has built his thirfting business into a six-figure operation.

Because of his success, Smith will be part of a delegation of eBay sellers from across the United States making a trip to Washington, D.C., on April 30 as part of the Small Business Fly-in/Advocacy Day of the U.S. of eBay, where he will be talking to senators and congressmen about the issue of Internet sales tax.

"Let's set up some limits so we can protect the little guy," Smith said. "They're going to have to give us a threshold that establishes what a 'small business' is. … Will it be total sales? Will it be the number of employees? I don't know yet."
