East Dundee tacks on “amusement tax” for streaming services

CHICAGO (CBS) – Streaming TV and movies is about to get a little pricier in East Dundee.

The village board in the northwest suburb just approved a measure to add a 5 percent “Amusement Tax” to streaming services, like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

The goal is to reduce how much East Dundee relies on sales tax. So if your streaming subscription costs $ 15 a month, you’ll see a 75-cent tax on your bill, starting this July.
