Residents of Pennsylvania are now subject to a six percent sales tax on digital products as defined under Act 84 of 2016. Digital products, as it pertains to this tax, include “any product transferred electronically to a customer by download, streaming, or through other electronic means”. Examples of this include e-books, digital video streamed through Netflix or Hulu, songs downloaded or streamed through iTunes or Google Play, and downloaded apps or add-ons. The tax is collected by the vendors of the product and the location of the sale is determined by the customer’s billing address.
