Netflix is a huge company. Loveland, Colorado is small town, relatively speaking. So why in the world is a hug company suing such a small town?
Well, it's somewhat complicated, and I am not really great about understanding legal stuff, so here is what 9News says about the whole thing:
The online streaming service and DVD rental company filed a complaint in Eighth District Court against the city of Loveland and its finance director Brent Worthington after Loveland issued a sales tax assessment of more than $116,000.
Netflix said the city's tax bill to the company for more than $116,508.22 in unpaid taxes violated state and federal law. The assessment recorded $85,504.43 in sales taxes, $8,550.49 in penalties and $22,453.30 in interest for the period between Sept. 1, 2012, and Aug. 31, 2015
The city is now backing down, and asking the state of Colorado to step in and help determine what's right in this case.
I just hope Netflix doesn't start treating us, here in NoCo, any different after this... We love you Netflix!!
