New York State Finds Revenue From Pole Dancing Can Be Taxed

YouTube

For a long time, pole dancers have been able to get by without having to have taxed wages hiding behind ‘performance’, but now New York State says it’s totally taxable. According to Reuters, pole dancers in Upstate New York had been lobbying to get their private dances and performances qualified as a tax exempt act of ‘art’. Not the case.

A court has said no way, and those wages are totally taxable now.

Surely it was not irrational … to conclude that a club presenting performances by women gyrating on a pole to music, however artistic or athletic their practice moves are, was also not a qualifying performance entitled to exempt status

So if you are planning on hitting a gentlemen’s club in New York anytime soon, expect to pay a little sales tax.
