Amusement Sales Tax Audit

By April 29, 2024April 30th, 2024Sales Tax Videos

Did you know that amusement tax applies to transactions where money is accepted for entertainment? Think about cover charges, admission fees, concert tickets, or nightclubs. Amusement tax applies to all of these transactions.


Should having a fun time be taxed? I’m Mansoor Ansari with Nexus Tax Defense. Today, we’re going to talk about amusement tax. If you’re in the business of providing a service in the form of accepting entrance fees in exchange for entertainment, then the state might be expecting you to collect amusement tax from your customers. This type of tax applies to things like: number one, tickets to fares; number two, admissions to sporting events; number three, a covered charge at a nightclub; or four, maybe concert tickets. If you’re undergoing a sales tax audit, you will definitely need to separate the amusement aspect of your business from your non-taxable sales. Call us if you have any questions. Thanks.
