PlayStation begins collecting amusement tax from Chicago users

Story :

PlayStation users in Chicago on Wednesday began paying a 9 percent tax on streaming content as the gaming company starts complying with a city levy.

The Sony-owned company joins other streaming services including Spotify, Netflix and Hulu in complying with the charge, which took effect three years ago.

The city’s amusement tax, which used to apply mostly to concert and sporting event tickets, was extended to include streaming services in 2015. That includes charges paid for playing games, according to Chicago’s Finance Department.

Now if Chicago would just use that tax money to get rid of the crime they have that has earned them the distinction of being one of the most crime ridden and dangerous cities in the nation.

Wishful thinking, I know.

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
