I hope you had a relaxing weekend. This week I’m highlighting a massive tax on Marylanders passed during the 2021 Legislative Session by the Democratic Majority right as we were recovering from the pandemic, the deadline for renewing driver’s licenses, and a new drop off for Habitat for Humanity.
Stop the Madness - Repeal the "Dem" Netflix Tax Now!
Unbelievably during a pandemic, back in 2020, the Maryland General Assembly Democrat Majority raised $100 million in new taxes on digital download services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, iBooks, Spotify, news subscriptions and 100s more. Help us repeal this DEM Netflix tax, like we repealed their ridiculous Rain Tax. Governor Hogan correctly vetoed this bill but in this past 2021 Session, the Democrats overrode his veto on a mostly party-line vote.
We want to repeal this "Netflix Tax" in the 2022 Session beginning in January. Join me, my fellow Maryland Senate Republicans and thousands of hard-working Maryland families in the fight to repeal the “DEM” Netflix Tax. Sign our petition below and send a message to Annapolis politicians that we don’t need more taxes!
For More Information: Watch the video that explains the issue and what we want to do about it.
