New Jersey to tax iTunes Store sales?

New Jersey iTunes Tax

The state of New Jersey has been suffering from debt problems, now owing $4.5 billion. To combat this, Governor Jon Corzine has recently begun taxing individual services such as health club memberships and storage facilities. Controversially, iTunes Store purchases will also fall under new tax laws, reports Macenstein. Direct music and video download sales have generally remained tax-free since their inception, in part due to laws prohibiting taxes on out-of-state sales; however, the new law would require that each album, song, or video bought by a New Jersey resident be subject to a 7% tax. No challenges to the new law have yet to be filed.

    now, how to get more $...

    politicians are so smart. one sure way to get a state out of debt is to sour an industry that is barely hanging on to limewire-et-al's back by taxing it. yes. yes, that should work fine.
