So sorry to hear some of you are dealing with this already. Sounds like some of the tax rates are extreme. Curious, do you include the sales tax in your price to do you charge it in addition. For example if you currently charge $20 for admission and sales tax is 5.5%, do you charge $21.10 or do you lower your price and charge $18.95 x 5.5% = $20?? I would think you would want to avoid having to give change in coins, but that’s a huge amount to absorb.
Ohio is considering implementing a new sales tax of 5% on entertainment (sporting events, movies, theatre, etc.) they haven’t mentioned haunted attractions yet, but it will probably be added when someone figures out that it hasn’t been included.
I’m asking the questions to help us prepare for when it happens. Trying to figure out how to budget/plan for it.
Thanks for all the comments.
