My proposal would be a new tax - like property tax.

All advertising - broadcast or printed, movie product placements, distributed flyers, mailings, etc. would be subject to this tax.

Hey, if it makes a difference in the life of one child it will all be worth it.

Yes, many of those things are taxed. Mailings - like Clipper magazine are taxed by many states or those coupons you get in an envelope. The movie product placement item is funny though. That would be impossible - often there is no payment, which means there would be alternative pricing - it would be a nightmare - how many seconds on screen...is it fully visible or partially covered - I think that is a non starter.

But most of the states that charge sales taxes already have you covered for the others.

As for income tax, the states are far ahead of you. All income is portioned by state for media companies. So for example, if 10% of a paper's subscriptions are in Virginia, that state gets 10% of the paper's revenue/expenses and pays income tax in that manner....same with broadcast companies. Kansas has 3% of a company's viewership, Kansas gets 3% of the company's revenue/expenses for purposes of state income tax. Trust me, nothing goes untaxed. You have nothing to worry about.
