In Georgia, state lawmakers are proposing new taxes on phone lines, TV streaming and maybe online streaming services that include Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The telecommunications tax will be an additional tax to the existing sales taxes on equipment to help defray the costs of building high speed internet lines that will serve 16% of rural Georgia that do not have internet access. The additional tax will add about $200million annually in new revenue.

The telecommunications tax will cover phone and TV services, internet phones and satellite TV’sthat are not currently being taxed. On the other hand, existing franchise taxes on communication services will be removed to be replaced by the new telecommunications tax. Whatever proceeds that will be generated from the new tax will be divided between the state and local governments.

According to Clint Mueller, a lobbyist from Association County Commissioners of Georgia, the new tax will even out the playing field. This will remove the fees and sales taxes that are being applied to bits and pieces of technology. However, it still unclear whether the telecommunications tax will be set at 5% rate and cover online streaming services.

Under the 1998 federal law called the Internet Tax Freedom Act, internet service providers are exempt from paying taxes. Meanwhile, states like Florida and Pennsylvania have started to levy taxes on video streaming services. Both Amazon and Netflix have not issued any comments regarding the telecommunications tax.

It is important for rural Georgia to be able to enjoy fast internet service so that they will enjoy the same conveniences of urban dwellers. For example, with internet access, a rural Georgia business or entity can easily download Georgia Tax ID Form to obtain a Tax ID without hassle.

Dural’s Billyard Homes  Fined Over Head Injury

Billyard Homes Pty Limited got sent to the courtroom a while back due to one of their contractors, one of the many plasterers in Sydney, suffering a head injury after experiencing a 2.5m fall in a West Pennant Hills building site.

The Dural-based company lost the prosecution, and has been fine $60,000 plus the accompanying legal costs, on the verdict of having failed to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of the worker that ended up suffering a dangerous brain injury back in June of 2015.

Matt Kean, the Better Regulation Minister, stated that Billyard Homes was the primary contractor at the building site where Yin Peng Zhang, fell into an unguarded hole at 6 Yarralumla Way, West Pennant Hills, Sydney.

According to the Sydney Court District, Mr. Zhang was working on an upper level of the construction site, plastering the nail holes in the construction, on June 29,2015, when he unfortunately fell down into an unguarded hole and straight into the ground floor below.

The SCD, according to Mr. Kean, heard that Mr. Zhang sustained several severe injuries, including major damage to his brain, which resulted in him being unable to either work or continue his education.

Court documentation on Mr. Zhang shows that he has been in Australia, working as one of the many plasterers in Sydney, via a student visa complimented by work allowances, and had been in the country since December of 2013. The documentations say that Mr. Zhang suffered sever trauma to the frontal areas of the brain, as well as other head injuries as a result of his fall.

According to Mr. Kean, the investigation, conducted by SafeWork, had discovered that the company had failed to take the necessary safety precautions as the scaffolding in the area was not inspected, nor was it ensured that fall prevention measures were set in the site.

Mr. Kean says that, sadly, eight people have already died in Sydney in work-related falls in 2017. He says that not only are they deadly, but anyone who survives might end up severely disadvantaged, like Mr. Zhang. Kean has expressed his intention to avoid any incident like this.

A Billyard Homes rep went to the court and pleaded guilty on behalf on the company under the jurisdiction of Judge David Russell, who then imposed the $60,000 fine on the third week of November.

Couriers Receiving More Complaints Due To Failed Deliveries

Couriers Receiving More Complaints Due To Failed Deliveries

An online shopper who wished to be hidden by the name Ben Thomas was quite shocked when he found out that the robot vacuum cleaner he had ordered online worth £262 was already signed as delivered. The parcel was not at his place in London and there was no card for pickup that was inserted into his letter box. Yodel was the courier in charge of the item and they said that the parcel was already signed, by another person. Cases such as this will warn others to choose courier online or locally with care because they will be handling your items.

Thomas said that the driver of the delivery van was the culprit and he signed by forging the signature of the receiver. He was caught after his statements changed quite a few times. The sad fact is that Yodel is not taking actions after what happened. Thomas will not expect a refund from the online retailer because they said that Yodel showed them that it was already signed as received.

There is a growth in the online shopping industry which resulted to the increase of parcels to be delivered. The postal services that were previously offered by Royal Mail alone were no longer in the scene. In fact, the market is now filled with businesses that are offering cheap options to consumers.

Cheap comes with a cost, in the end, because Yodel is now considered to be the worst courier in the country for the second survey in a row. According to 57 per cent of the participants, they received customer service from the company. The problem is that many of the huge online shopping companies are employing cheap services such as Yodel in order to cut the necessary budget.

The Alternative Dispute Resolution Scheme for Communications was the one in charge of keeping tabs of all customer complaints but they can only monitor firms that are the organization’s scheme. Their website does not show what courier online is under them and they have not also provided a list. When sending, it is best to pay for the insurance because the courier will not be sending any cash replacement in case of problems if insurance is not availed.
