NY Governor Wants Tax on All Internet Downloads — Including Porn

February 19, 2009 at 1:16 am 3 comments

David Paterson, the governor of New York, has proposed a 4% tax on all Internet downloads, which has caused a bit of a kerfuffle because the tax could include pornography and other unsavory content.

Paterson said the tax would apply to software, music, books and video downloads as well as other content on the Web. “It is a general proposal, not focused on the content, so it would apply to any download, regardless of the content.”

Mr. Paterson proposes the tax to help the state’s deficit. Michael Long, from the New York Conservative Party, slammed the idea because it would include a tax on porn. “By taxing it you’re legitimizing it”. 20 states currently have some download tax.
