Taxation of Internet Video Service (Oppose – Mandate) 

Taxation of Internet Video Service (Oppose – Mandate) 

SB 1210 (Brandes) defines “internet video service” and excludes this type of service from the

definition of “communications services” and therefore excludes internet video services from the communications services tax. Under this bill, internet video service means a subscription video programming service received by the end-user customer by means of a wired or wireless internet connection. Additionally, the bill prohibits a government from levying or collecting any tax, charge, fee or other imposition on the purchase of any internet video service. (Hughes)
