If you write to your legislator, here’s some info:
- This tax is being inconsistently and unfairly applied to only some music venues, threatening their survival
- Venues owners have tried to work with the Department of Revenue,
but the DoR has been unable to provide clear direction for when an “opportunity to dance” exists
- Other venues have been audited and not charged the tax
