This is a controversial tax that the General Assembly approved by [overriding] the Governor’s veto. It creates a new tax on digital advertising on platforms such as Facebook, Google and other digital platforms. It will operate pretty much like a sales tax and the big tech companies will pass the tax along to [consumers]. The fight is not over, as the US Chamber of Commerce, the Internet Association, NetChoice and the Computer and Communications Industry filed a suit against the State of Maryland citing that it violates the Internet Tax Freedom Act and is an infringement of the Due Process Clause of the US Constitution.
