Taxation of Internet Video Service (Oppose – Mandate) 

Taxation of Internet Video Service (Oppose – Mandate) 

SB 1210 (Brandes) and HB 1245 (Brodeur) define “internet video service” and exclude this type of service from the definition of “communications services” and therefore exclude internet video services from the communications services tax. Under these bills, 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 bills prohibit a government from levying or collecting any tax, charge, fee or other imposition on the purchase of any internet video service. (Hughes)
