And You Thought Taxes Were Boring...

This week, the Court of Appeals in the state of New York has been asked to determine whether or not revenue earned by strip clubs from admission fees and lap dances are subject to state sales tax or whether such income falls under an exemption relating to dramatic or musical arts performances, such as the ballet. Attorneys for the Nite Moves strip club in Albany, New York argued that lap dancing is an art form and the State of New York is not qualified to determine that such dances are not art without violating the right of freedom of expression of the dancers. Needless to say, the State of New York disagreed. A ruling is expected next month. For the whole story, as reported by the Associated Press click here.
