The city of Philadelphia is demanding that bloggers pay $300 for the privilege of writing on the Internet. This $300 “business privilege license” is for all local bloggers – even the ones that make no money off their words. The city doesn’t stop there. In addition to the $300 for the license to write on the World Wide Web, bloggers must pay city wage taxes, business privilege taxes and taxes on any net profits.

Even worse, with the city’s tax charge being more than what most bloggers make, their voices could be silenced, as the extra expense is enough to discourage many from even having a blog in the first place.
