AAF Omaha Legislative Committee Chairs
Ad taxes and privacy continue to be at the top of the list for the legislative committee. It seems that taxing digital advertising is emerging as legislators from around the country are introducing bills that include some type of ad tax. In New York, the two focal points are coming together. Sen. Liz Krueger (D), chair of the Finance Committee, has recently proposed an alternative to a digital ad tax, and would instead impose an excise tax on the collection of data about New York consumers for commercial use. The bill is currently being discussed in committee.
