Course Description

The Maryland General Assembly recently enacted a bill that imposes a tax on digital advertising, a first of its kind. Advocates of the digital advertising tax believe it provides the state with more revenue from Big Tech, while opponents believe it violates the federal Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act and the First Amendment. Will Maryland’s legislation survive legal challenge, and how will it affect the future of state tax policy?

This webinar will include a discussion on the Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA), the Multistate Tax Commission, and a brief overview of events relating to the taxation of digital goods and services.

Learning Objectives:


  • Identify the scope of the digital tax arena in today's world

  • Recognize the role of the multistate tax commission
