Cloud Tax

Chicago now has about a 9% tax on streaming services.  This covers streaming media as well as remote database or computing platforms.  The affects will be far reaching, like the phone taxes.I think i saw a report estimate of 12 Millions dollars a year in revenue.

How will this affect services and cities?  Well if you are a pour city, just tax the digital services.
This could create issues between not only the large services but the small services that trying to grow.

The question is what the actual line says in the bill  What if you have devices that are managed via the Intune cloud, or cloud DP.  How will this affect the company using or managing these services.

Only time will tell.
