Client Spotlight: How two satellite TV providers saved millions with MLC

Feb 22, 2016

When the State of Michigan surfaced a possible sales tax on services, satellite television providers DISH and DirectTV came to MLC for help. Although all television providers would have been taxed under the new law, satellite television providers would have been hit with a higher six percent sales tax compared to just one percent for cable providers. If passed, the results would be devastating to the entire satellite television industry.

By launching a grassroots consumer campaign and successfully lobbying at the capitol – where DISH and DIRECTV had a very minor presence and few connections – MLC saved the two companies millions. This is another great example of how MLC adds value through trusted relationships and insightful lobbying with legislators in Lansing.
