The New York State Assembly will consider AB 10706, the Digital Ad Tax Act or DATA, which would impose a sliding scale of taxes on digital advertising services that use personal information about the people the advertisements are targeting. The tax starts at 2.5% imposed on the annual gross revenues derived from digital advertising services in New York of a taxpayer with global annual gross revenue of $100 million to $1 billion, increases to 5% on revenues over $1 billion through $5 billion, 7.5% on revenues above $5- to $15 billion, and tops out at 10% on revenues exceeding $15 billion. If passed, the measure would go into effect immediately and apply to taxable years after Jan. 1, 2021. Note that the bill is identical to SB 8056A, which was introduced in March.
