Yesterday the Louisiana 24th Judicial District Court held that a cable service provider’s video-on-demand and pay-per-view video programming are not tangible personal property subject to sales tax. Jefferson Parish had alleged that the programming could be seen and heard and thus fell within the definition of tangible personal property. Following a trial, the court found for the taxpayer and held that the programming is a nontaxable service rather than tangible personal property. Sutherland represented the taxpayer in the matter.
