People who pay for cable television soon could have a line saying “state tax” added to their bills. The Ohio Cable T-V Association says its expects cable customers to be included in Governor Taft’s plan to generate more revenue to shore up the state budget. Taft is to announce details of the plan today. The association opposes the move. It says cable t-v already pays a tax in the form of a franchise fee to local governments. Edward Kozelek of the cable association says he doesn’t know how much money taxing cable t-v will raise for the state. Taft’s office isn’t commenting on the tax plan. Taft urged approval of the plan in last week’s state of the state speech. One of his proposals includes expanding the sales tax to an unspecified number of professional services.
