Hey bloggers- how would you feel if you had to pay a special tax????
Bloggers in Philadelphia are pretty mad.
Phili needs money so they have enacted a ” business privilege license costs $50 a year or $300 for a lifetime. So, if your blog takes money for advertising, or sells photographs or other goods, it’s a business and must pay for a license. You gotta fork it up no matter how little it makes you make PLUS taxes on profits.
Some bloggers are complaining that the fee would impinge on their free speech and would discourage dissent.
Computerworld says that Maura Kennedy, a spokesperson for the city, says that officials want money-making bloggers to register their business and start paying the tax.
“It’s a business privilege tax, just like for any business in the city, whether you’re selling widgets or writing a blog that brings in any kind of revenue,” said Kennedy. “It’s not anything about bloggers or the Internet. If you run any kind of blog in the city of Philadelphia, then you owe taxes.”
