    Mike, you could be correct. I've been listening to radio talk shows lately and it's sounding like it won't happen anytime soon. One potential reason, they included taxing lawyer fees! Guess which join is leading the fight to keep this tax from coming? Yep, the Ohio Bar Association, a good group to have on your side when you want to challenge a new tax. I'm sure somehow, someday they'll implement a sales tax; if not the state, then local city tax.

    I was just curious how many haunts in other states are dealing with this issue and I appreciate all the responses.

    Many cities in Ohio (over 70) are already charging a sales tax for entertainment venues. My guess would be that Governor Kasich is looking to take that from the towns that already have it in place and building on it from there. That, after all, is how this dickhead operates.

    It never ceases to amaze me. Cities tax and regulate people to death and then bitch when the people flee like refugees. What amazes me even more is when the city people move into the country, and bring all of their big city ideas with them. In effect they try to make their new location exactly like the location that they are fleeing from. It's a vicious cycle that boggles my mind.

    Texas does indeed collect taxes on every ticket, trinket, photo, what have you. There used to be an exception that if you were legitimately tied in with a 501(c)3...they could fill out the forms to send to the Texas State Comptroller-which effectively made you a revenue stream for THEM. Sales tax was not sent to the Texas Comptroller...but to the non profit event that you had partnered up with (Hint here: Make SURE they file the form with the Comptroller's office!)

    Pesonally, I'd always like to see the non-profit get it as opposed to the state. Never ceases to amaze me that people don't consider the taxes (or how they may legally minimize them) when they are crunching up their business numbers.
