“ Chicago adopted the revenue program in 2015, reinterpreting a long-standing tax program that levied a tax on tickets for recreational activities and concerts "to amusements that are delivered electronically," specifically aimed at streaming services like Disney+ and Netflix, as well as Spotify and Apple's own Apple TV+ streaming service, even though it hadn't been unveiled at the time.”

“a 9 percent charge on streaming services.”

Imho That’s just not right. Recreation and Concert taxation rules being applied to Netflix and Spotify and AppleTV+ etc? You live in Chicago and in your own home you sign up for music streaming and video streaming, you have to pay 9% tax, a tax and rate based on going to a concert? That absolutely is not right.
