California Bill Aims to Stop Local Netflix Tax Ordinances

California bill AB 252, also known as the Streaming Tax Relief of Entertainment And Movies (STREAM) Act of 2017, would bar local streaming taxes until 2023. “Video streaming companies like Netflix and Hulu are entertainment providers, not local utilities akin to electricity, sewer, or even cable television,” said Sebastian Ridley-Thomas in a statement. “Taxes should not be applied to their services without careful consideration.” – Janko Roettgers, Variety http://ift.tt/2keLQcj
