Blogging in Philadelphia? Pay up.

I know the city of Philadelphia is attempting to make money anyway it can, but this is an intriguing one -- tax bloggers.

Pardon me while I stifle a laugh.

Don't misunderstand me -- I'm not criticizing the city for wanting to collect appropriate business taxes. Nor am I suggesting bloggers ought to be exempt from meeting their financial responsibilities to their communities. But even if the amount of "money" some of these bloggers are making places them below the threshold of "taxable income", the city runs the risk of people "cheating" by simply not reporting this massive amount of income.
