Help Tamil Nadu government to tax DTH, IPL
Advertisement
#1
The Tamilnadu government today decided to slap entertainment tax on Direct- to- Home (DTH) service providers and Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tourney being played in Chennai.

DTH services will be charged 30 per cent while IPL cricket will be slapped with 25 per cent entertainment tax. A Bill in this regard was introduced in the State Assembly today by State Commercial Tax and Registration Agri Krishnamurthy.

According to the Bill, the DTH service providers, who transmit private satellite channels directly to consumers’ house in the State, will be imposed 30 per cent as entertainment tax on overall price, excluding the service tax.

Similarly, for the IPL matches, 25 per cent will be levied as entertainment tax on the total sum of cash including the tax amount paid, for getting permission to hold the T20 matches (as part of the IPL) in Chennai.

What about the 10.3% Entertainment Tax we are already paying? is that going to the Central government??? Sad I think if it goes through, the other states will also will follow the same. Yet, its not gonna be easy, as DTH industries will go against it for sure..
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.. for tomorrow never comes.. live today!!!
