Downloading music, movies, e-books and Apps could soon cost Connecticut residents more as lawmakers consider a tax on digital downloads.
The bill, proposed by the General Assembly’s Finance, Review and Bonding Committee, would have consumers pay the 6.35% sales tax on any electronic transfer.
Supporters say the bill would level playing the field. Brick-and-mortar retailers are required to charge a sales tax who purchase products in their stores, why is downloading music from an internet based store exempt?
In fact, 25 states have already begun taxing digital downloads.
The Committee will hold a public hearing about the proposed bill Friday morning at 10am at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
