Philadelphia Institutes a Lap Dance Tax on Strip Clubs

This is just un-american.

You have to pay taxes on everything.

City officials in Philadelphia have recently failed to introduce taxes on soda and cigarettes, but they have quietly decided that lap dance should be subject to the city’s amusement tax – and slapped the city’s strip joints with a hefty bill in unpaid taxes.

The five per cent amusement tax apparently came as a surprise to the owners of two of the biggest strip clubs in the city, Club Risque and Cheerleaders.

The city audited lap dances and then issued a tax bill going back five years.
