"Netflix tax" may be coming soon to your bill

The Pasadena city council has been taking heat for weeks, after announcing a 9.4 percent tax on streaming video.

They’re calling it a utility, so it can be taxed like water and electricity.

Pasadena City Councilman Tyron Hampton says the surprise tax was designed to make up for lost tax revenue from people getting rid of cable TV and home phones.
