Internet, business groups challenge Maryland’s digital ad tax

February 19, 2021

National groups representing the likes of Facebook and Google are challenging Maryland’s first-in-the-nation tax on digital advertising in federal court, hoping to block its implementation and ward off attempts in other states to pass similar laws. They’re seeking an injunction to prevent the new tax, which they call a “punitive assault” on digital advertising, from being collected. They allege the tax will violate federal laws that bar discriminatory taxes on e-commerce and ban states from regulating interstate commerce and actions outside their borders.
