This was another tax from the British legislature on the colonies, in which they had to pay a tax on virtually every printed paper they used. Such as legal documents, licenses, and even newspapers. This and the Sugar Act angered many of the colonists, including Benjamin Franklin. He responded to the tax saying, "If you chuse to tax us, give us Members in your Legislature, and let us be one People." He was saying that the colonists should also have a say in how they were taxed or spent their money.
