Network Taxation Under Consideration In Florida [9:07 am]

It’s going to be interesting to see how they expect to collect this tax: Florida to Tax Home Networks

Florida state officials are considering taxing home networks that have more than one computer, under a modified 1985 state law that was intended to tax the few businesses that used internal communication networks instead of the local telephone company.

[...] “According to my accountant, the way the law is written, if my tax filing includes deductions for the repair or maintenance of my two computer and one printer network, those costs will be subject to state communication taxes,” said graphic artist Linda Kellman, who works from home. “Self-employed people get slammed with insane taxes everywhere, and I’ve sadly but grudgingly accepted that. But this tax, if they ever try to collect it, would be the last straw. Can I outsource my network to a more sensible state, do you think?”

[...] “All my life, I’ve willingly paid my fair share of taxes in exchange for community services,” said 73-year-old George Fedoro, a retired engineer who now lives in Boca Raton. “But this tax is not fair and could turn senior citizens into criminals, because no one that I know can or will pay it.”
