Pennsylvania Bringing a 6% "Netflix Tax"

Pennsylvania is looking to help fund some budget increases by now including streaming and digital downloads as part of the State's 6% sales tax. As such, the Keystone State will join several other US cities like Chicago, and also parts of Canada.
Though the term “Netflix tax” has become popular, laws like this don’t just affect Netflix – they also affect competitors like Hulu and HBO Now. App purchases and ebooks are also affected.

Or, if you download/stream a lot, maybe $10 per month for a mail forwarding service won't look so bad.
