I'm from DC and I got an email about Iowa sales tax. I think they mixed up the zip codes. Iowa zips seem to be 50001 where DC is 20001.

Hey!  I also got this email.

 

All's I can say for sure is that, and this may be surprising, but the District of Columbia is actually in the United States!

 

In fact, it's been in the US almost as long as the US itself has!

 

From Wikipedia:

 

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington or D.C., is the capital of the United States

So there you have it!

Iowan here as well, and received the same email. Guessing someone messed up the form when they sent the email out and it should read State of Iowa sales tax. I have noticed my Netflix and Hulu subscriptions all increased this year as well.

 

While DC is in the US, those of us living outside of it should not pay a DC sales tax.

Yeah, Iowan here too. I am going to guess that someone at Spotify forgot to substitute 'Iowa' for 'District of Columbia' in their 'we are gonna charge you more' canned email. Our state so gratiously decided that all internet streaming services are now taxable.
