    Do you guys charge a flat rate or do you add sales tax onto your ticket price?

    flat rate and then we back out the taxes to pay the gubment. Making change would be a nightmare otherwise. :wink:

    Do you allow patrons to pay with credit card? In San Antonio the sales tax is 8.25 %, that would kill my margins if I take it out of the ticket price

    "Business" never pays their own taxes, the customer pays it for them, that's why prices of goods and services increase along with taxes.
    Just starting out will be an up-hill struggle but then it always is, you should have figured this beforehand (I'd hate to be the one just breaking the news to you at this moment, tell me I am not that person.)
    Getting the word out that you have a haunt and getting people to give it a try and making the amount of entertainment commensurate with the admission charged are all tough tasks to get a handle on, use a pot holder since many do burn their hands.

    I wonder out of each ten people, how many work for the government?
    At one time it might have been 2 or 3 of those ten?
    Salarys come from "somewhere?"
