L.A. Decides Not To Tax Satellites Flying Overhead
from the out-of-the-jurisdiction?- dept
Ron Morris writes “The Los Angeles County assessor’s attempt to tax at least eight satellites in orbit above the earth has been rejected. But somehow I feel they will manage to tax them someday…” The ruling was that the satellites were out of the city’s jurisdiction which seems like it makes sense. It’s kind of tough to see how something 22,300 miles away is actually in your jurisdiction. Apparently, Virginia Beach got away with a similar scam for a while, until they were forced to return the money.

I’d like to see them try to seize and auction one.
