As if I needed another reason to avoid Chicaco...

They're going to apply a 9% tax to the internet ("Electronically delivered amusements" and "nonpossessory computer leases").

These intentionally broad new tax rules affect more than just Chicagoans who want to stream their favorite show on Netflix or play a new album on Spotify. The 9-percent hike also applies to businesses that use could[sic] services, such as realtors who access real-time listings and attorneys who rely on Internet court databases.
