OPW - Feb 21 - The state of Maryland has proposed legislation that would put a 6% tax on finding love through online dating sites. Currently Maryland’s sales tax only applies to tangible personal property but Governor Martin O’Malley is proposing to expand this to include digital products. This could directly affect pricing models for all online dating sites that operate in Maryland. The Baltimore sun reports that the digital taxes could bring in $26M in revenue which would help Governor O’Malley close the billion dollar budget gap he faces. However, would the 6% price increase cause online daters to go elsewhere?
