    Downloading music, movies, e-books and Apps could soon cost Connecticut residents more as lawmakers consider a tax on digital downloads.

    The bill, proposed by the General Assembly's Finance, Review and Bonding Committee, would have consumers pay the 6.35% sales tax on any electronic transfer.

    Supporters say the bill would level the playing field for brick-and-mortar retailers in the state who are already required to charge Connecticut sales tax to consumers who purchase these products in their stores.

    About 25 states around the country have already begun taxing digital downloads.

    The Committee will hold a public hearing about the proposed bill Friday morning at 10am at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
