Good Thing My Blog Isn’t Based Out of Philadelphia. Otherwise I’d have to pay a $300 Business License Fee.

Talk about chutzpah. From the Washington Examiner:

Between her blog and infrequent contributions to, over the last few years she says she’s made about $50. To [Marilyn] Bess, her website is a hobby. To the city of Philadelphia, it’s a potential moneymaker, and the city wants its cut.

In May, the city sent Bess a letter demanding that she pay $300, the price of a business privilege license.

Let’s hope Johnstown doesn’t adopt the policy of the City of Brotherly Love.
