ANA Opposes Amended Maryland Digital Ad Tax Bill

March 11, 2020

Today, the ANA sent a letter to the entirety of the Maryland Legislature to declare our opposition to the amended version of SB 2 which would create a first in the nation tax on digital advertising. While the Legislature has taken some minimal steps to improve the original version of the bill, the ANA believes that SB 2 still creates numerous “very serious legal and constitutional questions.” These include the bill’s punitive nature, the inappropriate methods the bill utilizes to calculate the tax on digital advertising, and probable violations of the Commerce Clause and First Amendment.
