The DC Council is considering a new sales tax on advertising services, including digital advertising services, and personal information.
On July 6, the DC Council released the Committee Print of the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget Support Act of 2020, which includes a sales tax expansion to those services beginning October 1, 2020 at the reduced rate of 3% instead of the general 6% sales tax rate. On July 28, the DC Council will hold its second (and final) vote on the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget Support Act of 2020. If enacted, the District of Columbia would become the first jurisdiction to target sales of digital advertising services and personal information.
Join Todd Lard, Charlie Kearns and Stephanie Do from the Council on State Taxation (COST) on Wednesday, July 22 at 3:00 PM ET for a webcast discussion on the technical aspects and current status of the District’s proposed advertising services and personal information taxes.
