Do you think the internet will suffer if the government proposes a tax on it?
The United Nations and America are both supporting a $1.25 tax for each time you log onto to the Internet. This is beyond comprehension, and if I remember correctly the Internet was suppose to be FREE, so what in the world is going on here?
How do they tax something they don't own. If this were to happen, I would be done. Not paying, simple as that. I think a lot of sites would shut down, Internet services would be dropped, billions of dollars in Internet sales would be lost. It would be a catastrophe.
Not much in this world is free. Everything revolves around the dollar bill and we already pay for an internet provider. I would think they would be taking care of any tax. They are charging us service fees with tax on it.
I agree with Diana Lee: why pay a tax on something not owned by our government. What is the purpose of the tax? Also, it would be too expensive to continue to use the net if one is charged for each log in. I would rather pay a very small monthly access fee instead. I believe they would see a mass protest. Perhaps someone like Gates or Zuckerberg will provide internet free to users!
They won't charge you for logging in. However, adding fees to the ICANN for every domain or additional taxes charged to telecommunications companies for internet services are real possibilities.
I'm just waiting for the day that they charge a person for every search they make through Google.
