Subject: DC Ad Tax–Action needed ASAP
AAF DC and Ad 2 DC Leaders:
AAF has just learned that District of Columbia City Council Chair Phil Mendelson is planning on introducing a 3% ad tax tomorrow to help balance the District’s budget.
It is very important that Councilmembers hear from local advertising executives about how counterproductive and harmful a tax on advertising would be and why it should be rejected. A thriving advertising industry will be an important part of the city’s economic recovery.
