Schuylkill Valley Sports’ President Jerry Williams in Washington D.C. as part of NSGA’s delegation
June 7, 2017- The NSGA (National Sporting Goods Association) announced that legislation aimed at removing unfair conditions from the retail marketplace has been reintroduced. The Marketplace Fairness Act (S. 976) and the Remote Transactions Parity Act (H.R. 2193) were introduced recently, less than 24 hours after NSGA completed its third annual Capitol Hill Lobbying Day activities in Washington, DC.
The bipartisan RTPA bill was reintroduced in the House by Representatives Kristi Noem (R SD-AL), Steve Womack (R AR-3), Jason Chaffetz (R UT-3), Steve Stivers (R OH-15), Lou Barletta (R PA-11), John Conyers (D MI-13), Jackie Speier (D CA-14), Peter Welch (D VT-AL), Suzan DelBene (D WA-1) and David Cicilline (D RI-1). The bipartisan MFA bill was reintroduced by Senators Lamar Alexander (R TN), Mike Enzi (R WY), Dick Durbin (D IL) and Heidi Heitkamp (D ND). “NSGA has vigorously supported these bi-partisan bills and urges Congress to make 2017 the year when the unfair sales tax loophole is finally legislated out of existence,” NSGA President & CEO Matt Carlson said. “For far too long, online-only retailers have enjoyed an unfair advantage by avoiding sales tax. I’m sure our brick-and-mortar sellers would like to enjoy the same advantage, but they’re required to collect taxes.”
In 2013, the Marketplace Fairness Act passed in the Senate, 69-27, with strong bipartisan support, but the House refused to address the bill. In 2015, states lost an estimated $26 billion in uncollected state sales taxes due to this online sales tax loophole, nearly $3 billion more than when the Senate voted to level the playing field. Chances are your local taxes have gone up to replace this lost revenue. “Our members do not fear competition, but unfair competition with this government-sponsored favoritism is not good for our members, people who create jobs and support their communities in many ways,” Carlson added. “Now is the time for the House of Representatives to join the Senate in addressing this critical issue. “We urge all fair-minded Americans to contact their Senators and Representatives and tell them how important it is to support these necessary bills. If Internet sellers shouldn’t have to collect sales taxes, neither should brick-and-mortar.”
NSGA’s delegation met with Representatives and staff in 19 Congressional offices last week, receiving positive receptions on NSGA’s issues, which also included support for the PHIT Act, opposition to the Border Adjustment Tax, and support for loosening regulations that burden retailers and team dealers. Several Congressmen indicated support for PHIT and said they would sign on as co-sponsors. This bi-partisan bill encourages physical activity, reducing the costs involved for a wide range of sports and activities by allowing Americans to use their pre-tax Health Savings Accounts for activity-related purchases.

Schuylkill Valley Sports Can Help Your Team or Group Raise Funds through their Apparel Fundraisers
Everyone has heard the saying “no risk, no reward” what if there was a way to take no risks and still get a reward? Schuylkill Valley Sports has the ideal fundraising technique that offers rewards, at no risk to your team/business, with very little effort.
Since 1971, Schuylkill Valley Sports has been offering custom apparel, equipment or promotional items for leagues & businesses. They’re now using that ability to help leagues and groups in their fundraising efforts. By setting up a simple online custom store, all you need to do is decide which items you want to sell and then send the website to all followers and fans of your group.
Here’s how it works:
1. SVS builds a customized online store for your program with the items that you want to sell. When creating this online store, the group administrator will email the link to their target group, they can post it on social media, etc. If you are unsure about what to put on the custom items, you can choose your own logo, or we can design one for you. This is all about you and what you want your items to look like.
2. When it comes to pricing, all printing and setups fees with your organizations logo or custom design are included. Customers then can visit the website on their own time during a targeted timeframe and purchase their desired items using a credit card at their convenience. No hassle for the group organizer.
3. The administrator decides if they want the items shipped directly to each customer, to the administrator or offer in-store pickup at a specific SVS location.
4. After the online website timeframe ends and all the items have been delivered, the team and or business will receive a check for their percentage of the sales.
There is no risk, and yet with enough online sales, there could be a huge reward. Check us out online at teamsales.svsports.com and start your fundraising today!
Schuylkill Valley Sports Announces New NFL Jersey Insurance Program
With the uncertainty surrounding today’s NFL team rosters and players increasingly on the move, Schuylkill Valley Sports has developed a buyer’s insurance program to make customers feel more secure before purchasing their next favorite player’s jersey. Player trades, cuts and roster changes made due to the salary cap have become much more frequent in recent years, leaving many fans frustrated and hesitant when deciding what fan gear to purchase for the upcoming season. As exciting as it can be when your favorite team signs a new star player, it’s always disappointing when a fan favorite moves on to another team. Schuylkill Valley Sports is hoping its new NFL jersey insurance program will help fans feel more secure when purchasing a new player jersey.
Here’s how it works: SVS customers can purchase jersey insurance for $10 when purchasing a new jersey. If the player is traded or cut from their team, the insurance will allow the customer to purchase a new jersey at 50% OFF. The insurance is valid for 18 months after original purchase date and does not include retired or injured players. Customers do not need to turn in their original jersey to receive the discount. Visit any one of Schuylkill Valley Sports 18 convenient locations or online at www.svsports.com for complete program details.
SVS strives to provide excellent customer service, the highest level of merchandise and incredible deals. SVS hopes the new NFL jersey insurance will allow their customers the peace-of-mind they’re looking for when purchasing fan gear to root on their favorite teams and players.
