    Do you collect/pay sales tax on haunted house admissions? Ohio is considering charging a sales tax on entertainment (along with dozens of other new businesses) and I was wondering if any states are now charging a sales tax on haunted house admission?

    We are in Ohio, and our city charges us an Admission Tax per ticket sold. Just like with movie theaters, gym memberships, etc.

    Yes. Here in Maryland it's a whopping 10% admission and amusement tax.

    Ok here is the deal in Huntsville Alabama! In Huntsville I pay 91/2 sales tax! The city gets 4% State gets 5% and County gets 1/2%. It's the same as you buying something from Wal-Mart I always thought it sucked because they actually don't get anything. I feel admission should have a different rate! Shane and it's pay the tax man!
