"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.
