Cable and telecom companies have been using their money and influence to try and convince state legislators to pass unfair taxes on satellite TV services for more than a decade. With your help, we stopped these efforts almost every time they arose, but the prospect of unfair taxes on satellite TV are always lurking just beyond the horizon.
Streaming Internet Video Taxes
Also called “Over-the-Top” (OTT) taxes, municipalities and state governments have been trying to create new taxes on OTT video, whether it’s an internet TV service such as Sling TV or one of the growing subscription based on-demand video services. Like other technological innovations, governments see this as a way to raise new revenue, but we want to make sure these efforts don’t hurt this nascent industry.
Utility User Taxes (UUT)
Some municipalities are trying to tax internet video services like gas and electric services. UUT laws were written long before internet video services began and were never intended to apply to internet video services, which are fundamentally different from gas and electric services, and even cable TV which is sometimes considered a utility because it uses public right of ways to build its network.
