Taxes Going Up On Netflix Users In Manitoba And Across Canada?
Winnipeg, MB – If you use Netflix, you might soon be paying more taxes.
In an interview today with Evan Solomon from CTV’s Question Period, Canadian Heritage Minister Melanie Joly said charging GST to streaming services like Netflix remains an option.
Netflix does not pay taxes in Canada and they do not charge either provincial or federal taxes to their customers. Minister Joly says Netflix will not be asked to contribute to the Canadian Media Fund. This means applying provincial and federal taxes to Netflix services would be the most likely route towards the government taxing the service.
