Streaming services have another hurdle to face in terms of customers adoption.
Chicago is now tacking on an extra 9 percent “electronic amusement tax” to streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Netflix.
The city’s amusement tax covers purchases at book stores, record stores, etc. Now Chicago is looking to capitalize on that tax even though more customers are moving to digital purchases.
Netflix is already saying they’re planning to pass the extra 9 percent tax on to consumers.
