Chicago first city in America with 'Amusement Tax' on Netflix etc.

Very Interesting:

Starting Wednesday, the city of Chicago’s new "cloud tax" went into effect: it imposes a 9-percent tax on "patrons of amusement," including those services that are "delivered electronically."

In short: Netflix users in Chicago will be paying a little extra for their subscriptions pretty soon.

"We will be adding it to the cost we charge subscribers," Anne Marie Squeo, a Netflix spokeswoman, told Ars in a statement. "Jurisdictions around the world, including the US, are trying to figure out ways to tax online services. This is one approach."

She declined to respond to further questions.
