DON’T TAX SATELLITE TV!

Friday, May 10, 2013

[The following is a paid advertisement.]

The satellite television industry serves a crucial role in connecting Illinois to the rest of the world with content that informs, entertains and educates – in many instances it’s the exclusive broadcast service provider available to Illinois homes. In addition, the satellite TV industry is an important economic driver creating hundreds of jobs in our state.

Facts About Satellite TV in Illinois:

    • Serves 1.3 million households in Illinois (almost a third of homes that subscribe choose satellite)
    • Employs over 790 people, plus more than 1,000 technicians at 481 local retailers
    • Rural Illinois depends on satellite TV since cable does not often provide service to their area
    • Satellite TV offers a wider range of foreign language programming in comparison to cable

Lawmakers continue to be prodded by the cable TV industry to place a NEW 5% monthly tax on satellite TV service. Previous versions of this discriminatory tax proposal have been defeated in Springfield—and similar bills are regularly defeated in other states including three times in neighboring Indiana, Iowa and Minnesota. This revenue generator needs to be clearly labeled what it is: An unfair tax increase on the 1.3 million Illinois families and businesses who subscribe to satellite TV.

TELL YOUR LAWMAKERS, “DON’T TAX SATELLITE TV!”
