"Netflix tax" proving more lucrative than expected for Quebec
Quebec is raking it in with its so-called Netflix tax.
The provincial sales tax on digital services provided to Quebecers kicked in in January, and since then, has brought the govenment more than $15-million.
La Presse says that's about double the amount the government expected.
The province had projected revenues of $28-million for the first year. At this rate, its take will be $62-million.
About two-thirds of the companies targeted by the measure agreed to collect the 9.975% QST, including major players such as Netflix, Spotify, Apple, and Amazon.
The head of the QCGN wants to respond to the CAQ and their Anglo Secretariat.
Tom Mulcair believes we could see a serious shake up in the Democratic primary and don't expect to see the Pink Line any time soon.
