AAF Comments to ICANN

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton (D) and Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) have each announced plans for very similar budget proposals. Both plans would make many tax code changes. Most significant to the advertising industry, both Governors propose lowering their state’s sales tax rate and expanding the base to include many personal and business services – including advertising. Neither Governor has formally introduced his budget, so the exact form of each advertising tax is uncertain. Nevertheless, representatives of AAF advertising clubs in both states are coordinating with allied industry groups to plan and coordinate opposition to any extension of the sales tax to advertising.
