Submission + - Philadelphia Charging Bloggers $300 (citypaper.net)

geoffrobinson writes: The City of Philadelphia, suffering from budget problems like many municipalities, has started to charge their $300 "business privilege" tax against bloggers. Yes, in Philadelphia running a business is a privilege.

You have to pay the tax even if your blog takes in less than $300. "According to Andrea Mannino of the Philadelphia Department of Revenue, in fact, simply choosing the option to make money from ads — regardless of how much or little money is actually generated — qualifies a blog as a business."
